Watercolor

Yet another color lesson for my K-5 friends.   The class and I discussed the color wheel and how color influences, mood, perspective, value, and color saturation (intensity).  First we went over primary, secondary and tertiary colors.   The first project was to create “The Great Pumpkin”.  For this the students would need to combine their primary colors to achieve their secondary colors like orange (red+yellow), green (blue+yellow) and brown (blue+red).  We then went on to the warm and cool aspect of the lesson.  They painted a moon and sun using appropriate colors and adding a little stylistic touch of their own to their composition.
