2nd - 4th grades

The children will discover the magic of mixing colors as they create the rainbow in this art project suitable for  classroom, home school, or art room.  In the project, the students learn the three primary colors of red, yellow, and blue,  and have the experience of mixing them to create the three secondary colors of orange, green, and purple.  Through class discussion, they will also share experiences of observing and discovering the beauty of a rainbow.

Children will discover the fun of a rainbow as the paint gently fuses together to magically create the colors of our world - just like it does in the sky!
