3rd grade Mandala Color Wheels

Third graders just finished their second project of the year, color wheels! After review primary and secondary colors and then creating their own, we painted mandalas over the top of the color wheels. The results are striking. They are really very beautiful!! I would suggest making a trip over to the Randall 3rd grade hallway to see the entire display.

K/1 Color Explorations

Many of you are aware that I am an art teacher at not one but two schools!  One school is 3rd, 4th and 5th grade.  The other school has combined grade levels of K/1, 2/3 and 4/5.  Here are some examples of the little ones color explorations from the last few weeks.

We read the book Mouse Paint by Ellen Stol Walsh (no relation) and learned about three curious little mice who discover color mixing.  Just like the mice, the K/1 students started mixing their own colors!

After experimenting with color mixing, we reviewed our primary colors.  From the mice and Greg Percy, we learned the primary colors are red, yellow and blue.  Piet Mondrian was an artist who loved the primary colors along with squares and rectangles.

Here is an example of Mondrian using a little color:

Here is an example of Mondrian using lots of color!

K/1 students choose to use a little or a lot of color as well as small squares and rectangles or large.
