Crazy Colors, Primo Painting
Today I planned an art project that I'll do with the kids in 2 weeks (next week they have a break, so I won't be coming in). I'm super psyched because I got to plan my own project instead of take one that's already been done. I'm going to teach the kids about the color wheel and have them experiment with the primary colors to make secondary and then tertiary colors. I'll teach them about white and black/ tints and shades. After they make their own colors, they can name them (like crayons) and paint a picture.
I typed up a worksheet today laying out what they'll be doing. First they've got to make a hypothesis on what secondary colors they think will be made with combinations of primary colors. Then they'll mix the paint and write down their observations. I think it'll be a lot of fun.
