Mixing Color with Kandinsky


'



I use this lesson with my older students (ages 3rd-6th) to practice color mixing and also to learn color theory. It's also great to introduce Wassily Kandinsky, patterns and rhythm. I use a square canvas and have them divide into nine square parts. We paint each square one of the following: (I only allow the students to use blue, red, yellow, black and white for mixing): primary colors, secondary colors, complementary colors, analogous colors, warm colors, cool colors, neutral colors, tint/shade of one color, and the last with colors of their choice. They have so much fun mixing and seeing the variations in color.
