I love introducing kids to the world of color. The names of colors are just the beginning. I’m talking how to mix colors to make new colors, the relationships between colors, and even the idea that color can induce an emotional response. These color mixing charts are an easy way to introduce lots of color concepts in an easy, hands on way.
The elements of art are building blocks for learning to make, write, and talk about any kind of art. Whether you’re an art teacher, a classroom teacher, or a homeschool mama starting off the elements with a little color theory is an easy and fun place to start!
Teaching color in art is a basic elementary feat, right? Learning colors is done in pre-school, kindergarten, and of course, art class. What if we took it a step further and didn’t just teach the colors but also the color families, and how to make secondary and primary colors, and how the colors relate to one another?
Color mixing is one of the things that can be explored at any age, any intensity, and over and over without getting stale. This quick color mixing exercise can be done with just a couple of supplies that are easy to find at the local dollar store- so you can try it today!
