Picasso's Black and White artwork would be a great way to teach my middle school students about expressing certain moods, feelings and emotions without using color paints. The CA 8th grade Art Standard 1.2 goes along well with this "Analyze and justify how their artistic choices contribute to the expressive quality of their own works of art."
