Once the drawing was completed, I had the students paint the background. They could only choose one color. After the background, I had my students choose a color for their instrument. For this, I had my students think about warm and cool colors. If their background was cool, then they had to choose a warm color for their instrument. If their background was warm, they had to choose a cool color for their instrument. Once their instrument was painted, students worked on painting the other details in their picture. Lastly, students used black paint to outline.
