Students will learn that feelings can be represented by colors in this book and lesson. They will listen and watch the story, draw with me to create a monster of their own using shapes they like, add fur, teeth, eyes, arms and legs, and then add watercolors to the artwork. If parents would like to work further with emotions and/or color identification, they may create 5 containers for color coded items to help children identify the feelings they are having but have trouble expressing.

**Parents please set up a good painting space before the class begins! Clear a large space for the work area and protect any important items-computer, floor, furniture, etc. There is a water spill risk with this project so use only an inch of water in the wash tub at a time. This can be changed as necessary and prevents any large scale issues with spillage. It also discourages students from "painting" the water in the bowl. Secure the painter's/masking tape 1/2" around the watercolor paper edge creating a clean white border for the painting and securing the paper to the table surface or newspaper. This will also create a beautiful edge for your child's work of art and make it frame worthy if you desire to do that. The attached "painter's/masking tape" video is only 2 minutes long but can be helpful if you want to save this artwork for display or framing in the future. You can find the masking tape video link in "External Resources."
