ART OF MY SOUL DAY 4: YOUNG KIDS CREATE ORIGINAL ART WITH PAINT

Day 4: Kids+Paint


Blending practice of primary colors for me
resulted in a colorful forest.
Art is therapy, right?  Well, I just got out of an amazing session!  There's something about blending colors together that soothes the soul.  During the pilot phase of my art summer day camp, I taught my little campers how to mix vibrant hues using the primary colors.  They were amazed as they shouted their questions throughout our art studio.


---"What makes pink?" [red+white] 
---"How do I make green?" [yellow+blue]
---"What will happen if I mix orange and blue?" [brown]


They just learned how to read three-letter words like c-a-t, d-o-g, and l-e-t.  Guess what word did not require the sounding out of each letter multiple times?


Right, A-R-T!  They seemed to already be born with a sense of what constituted art.  When I asked them what they liked best about their experience with painting they both said they enjoyed making beautiful things.  I thought that was sweet. 


I am fascinated at the role art plays in their learning.  Incorporating many different forms of art has truly seemed to accelerate the learning process.  It also makes our days incredibly enjoyable and a little unpredictable.
The primary colors are all you need.




They created original abstract pieces and they deemed them
absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
