Supplies: color pencils, markers, or pastels. 81/2 X 11piece of white paper.
1. Fold the paper into 4 squares.
2. In each square you've created, write a feeling, such as mad, sad, happy, lonely, etc.
3. Using color, assign a color to each of these feelings. What color do you associate with mad? When you feel mad, is there a color that comes to mind that represents mad to you? You can color in the entire square or make a marks or images, it doesn't matter.
It is interesting to use this chart as a guide to see if there are colors you tend to use more often in your art work. Also, if you identify a color that makes you feel happy, you might want to consider painting a room in your house this color, or buy sheets or pillows in this color. Be aware when you change colors in your surroundings if something in you changes. You might also want to wear different colors to see how that affects your mood.
Have fun playing with color in your life and see what happens!
