Did you know that colors can affect your emotions and mood? Many famous artists use color to imbue their art with a certain emotion. Pablo Picasso even went through stages where he focused on just one color, such as his Blue Period!
Self-portraits are often very expressive. Artists use line, composition, and color to create an overall mood or feeling. Luckily, you don't have to be a famous artist to play with color or paint a self-portrait! Encourage your child to explore color and its mood-altering effects by creating his own self-portrait using only warm or cool colors.
