Color Studies in Grade 1

First graders learned that red, yellow and blue are the primary colors.  They also learned that these colors are special because you cannot make them, but they can be used to make all the other colors on the color wheel!

Inspired by Kandinsky’s color studies (above), students created their own color study dots.   We created 5 dots: a primary dot, a secondary dot, a “how to make purple” dot, a “how to make orange” dot and a “how to make green” dot.  Click here to see all works from Mrs. Decker’s class at our Artsonia gallery page.  Here are two examples from Amelia and Lilah.
