Glue Shoe, multi-media contour line

This lesson is jam packed with teaching the elements of art!
It teaches about contour line, cool and warm colors, color blending, value, and uses a unique technique of drawing with glue!
I have the students take their shoe off, draw it large on the 12 by 18 inch paper, draw lines to divide up background space, outline all lines with glue, and wait to dry. 
The next day, they choose whether they want a cool shoe or a hot shoe. 
Using only cool or warm colors, they have to create a range of value and blend with colored pencils in each area of the shoe and back ground. 
I think it turns out really nice and vibrant...
