Color Wheel Pt. 1
As I've been perusing my blog entries, I've realized I never wrote about my first painting project with the kids I volunteer with. Opps! Anyway, It was great - a far cry from the first art project I did. I had a full group of kids, and although they were a bit rambunctious, they all worked with their tutors and figured out how to mix not only green, orange and purple using the primary colors, many of them went on to make tertiary colors and and black and white as well. There was one major glitch though - there wasn't enough blue, red and yellow paint! Thankfully I realized this before the kids started to show up and I ran home (I only live 3 blocks away) and brought my own paint. Because of that lost time, I wasn't fully set up for the kids, but it all worked out. When it comes down to it, I was just relieved that many kids wanted to do the project with me. I made a color wheel at home for them to see and I painted an apple with all the colors I created. I learned a lot and I helped me for next time. I had everything set up, including paint pallets, water and paper towels for each kids so as to make it less chaotic. I could totally be an art teacher with a little more practice and authority.
