Blue and Yellow make GREEN!

1st grade worked on the color green recently. Here's how we did it...

We talked about Claude Monet's and his technique he used to create some of his water lily images. I gave the kids yellow and blue paint with a q-tip to apply the paint in a similar way.

We left them to day. Day two the kids cut out lily pads and created the water lilies to place on the art work. The concept studied was GREEN as a secondary color.


  1. By the way I love this! We did orange with "The Perfect Pumpkin" and now we can explore different shades of green.

  2. The colors remind me of Van Gogh's Iris' too.
