Activate student interest and let imaginations run wild with The Ringling!

Discover how color is used by artists to convey a mood or feeling in a work of art. Explore three works of art at The Ringling and learn how artists use a color palette to give their artwork a specific feeling. Students will read the poem Since Hanna Moved Away by Judith Viorst and will analyze how the poem uses color as a symbol for emotions. Students will then analyze works of art and craft color palette that reflect the mood of the artwork. Lastly, students will create a color palette and original work of art that captures an emotion.
