Fall painting idea: invite students to create their own warm-colored fall inspired painting. Teach about warm colors and inspire creative thinking with this fun art provocation.
I love giving my students different ways to explore colours, different textures, painting tools and to allow them to be creative. I set up this invitation to create a fall painting to allow them to paint the picture they wanted.
As an introduction to learning about colours, I read the book Fresh Fall Leaves and we discussed the different colours we see in autumn and how they make us feel.

After discussing what warm colours are, I introduced them to this Invitation to Create using warm colours and fall as our inspiration.
I got the idea for this art project here and the class really enjoyed making their own fall trees. They created some beautiful pieces of art and learned all about warm colours in the process!
