1. Pick a sheet of paper and mix a paint color either lighter or darker than you paper color.
2. Paint the edge of the paper, and then divide it in half with a line down the middle (landscape orientation).
3. Paint the outlines of two people, making sure their hands, legs and heads all touch the outer painted edge.
4. Color the shapes with oil pastels.

Post your images at Facebook or Instagram (#kidsartweek), and we'll see you tomorrow!
