Lines and Colors and Shapes....Oh My!
First grade started their Barrows art experience learning about primary and secondary colors, geometric and free-form shapes, and line variety. The students incorporated these elements of art into an abstract painting. On day two of our painting we took a break from the painting process to conduct an art experiment. After reading the book, Mouse Paint, the boys and girls mixed cups of primary colored water to make secondary colors. They then had fun experimenting with mixing all three colors together.
