Painting Exploration – Grade 1


First grade has started exploring paint in art last week. We reviewed the primary and secondary colors, how to mix the secondary colors, the parts of a paint brush, and how to clean a paint brush.  

Then everyone had the rest of class to practice using their paintbrushes appropriately, and mixing colors.

While they were working, first graders noticed the difference between painting and drawing, which is one of our big ideas for this unit.
