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!
Color is one of my favorite topics to focus on when teaching little people. Everyone can relate to color! If identifying primary colors is an obvious place to start then mixing secondary colors is an obvious next step! What are secondary colors and how to make them is a lesson suitable for any age!
