white rectangular paper (we used 12x18 white paper)
tempera paint in the primary colors (red, yellow, blue)
mixing tray (we used paper plates)
oil pastels/or chalk
First you fold your paper into 8 sections. (C told me the teacher did it for her)
Then you start with a dot in the middle of the rectangle spaces and paint around the dot in different colors until you fill up the space. My daughter told me that the idea was to mix colors with the primary colors. She absolutely loved the idea of mixing colors just like when we did our Egg Carton Paintings here.
Here is Squares and Concentric Circles by Wassily Kandinsky made in 1913. How do you think our paintings compare?
