Good morning and Happy Tuesday! Students will be practicing Color Mixing by completing the Color Mixing Worksheet. If you have some primary colored play dough or Model Magic, specifically the colors red, yellow, and blue play-doh (any brand will work) that will be great. If not, here is a simple salt doh recipe from to make your own homemade dough.

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Separate into 3 batches. Use food coloring to create 1 red batch, 1 yellow batch, and 1 blue batch, each in a separate bowl. YOUR HANDS WILL GET DYE ON THEM. They will eventually come clean with soap and water. 🙂

Students will folow the prompts on the worksheet to pratice mixing little pieces of play-doh to create the secondary colors of green, orange, and purple. Of course it helps if they say the magic words we sometimes use in Art Class of: abra-cadabra, hocus pocus, ala-cazam, sha-zam, bippity, boppity, boo. Students can press pieces of each color onto the worksheet in the appropriate spaces.

As always, feel free to email me a picture of your work to jherion@stjuliana.org . Have fun and happy creating!

Mondrian Broadway Boogie Woogie

Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade students have been learning about and reviewing Colors, Primary Colors, Secondary Colors, and Color Mixing. This week we will talk about artist Piet Mondrian and his famous artwork called “Broadway Boogie Woogie”. Mondrian liked to use the Primary Colors in his work. He used abstract art in this piece of art to relate to the area of Broadway in New York City. He used a grid to represent the streets, and the primary colors and simple shapes to represent the lights, buildings and taxi cars. Please see his artwork to the left and have the students print and complete the Mondrian Coloring Worksheet with crayons, color pencils, or markers. Here is a copy of a completed Mondrian Coloring Worksheet sample to help you. Click on the coloring worksheet words and the coloring worksheet sample words to open both links.
