The World of Color

We have been exploring how colors mix and connect and how to create different colors.  The mediums of liquid watercolor and tempera paint have provided rich explorations and research into how to create color.

Through these color connections the social aspect of learning is also engaging as children watch each other and ask ” how did you make that green?”   ” how do you make purple?”  And so the student becomes the teacher.

Within these experiences are also the “agreements” we make together of how to care for our materials, our brushes, how to clean our mixing dishes, how to squeeze out the right amount of paint, how to be an artist!
