I have been trying to implant the Primary and Secondary colors into my 1st graders all year. I am not a big proponent of ROY G BV, so I teach the colors like a simple math equation and it seems to work. Y + B = G etc. I found an adorable picture on Pinterest of elephants posing in different directions and thought we could use the two color families to paint this project. This was our first foray into tempera because frankly, watercolor is just so darn easy when you have back to back classes all day LONG.... I also thought the tempera would be so much more vivid and boy, was I right!
- I think they turned out pretty well for a first attempt with tempera. The pictures of the cupcakes below, are some beauties one of my favorite teachers made for May day.
She said that it took her 4 hours to do the marshmallow decorations on the top. They were scrumpdelicious!
