Pop Art Chimp

You know how sometimes you see what another teacher is doing and you know that you just HAVE TO TRY IT with your kiddos? Yeah well this was one of those cases. It was a great project for my first and second graders to kick off the start of the new year with color mixing. Given a limited color palette and a color wheel they had to decide who “plays nice together” and who doesn’t (and ends up muddy). The kids LOVED this game and took their time deciding where to place the color for their backgrounds.

During the next class (once the paint was dry) I did a guided drawing and we ended up with the cutest and most colorful collection of chimps (named “chimpy” by most). I think they are frame worthy for sure!
