K-2 Students are working on an Rainbows.  They have to remember not to contaminate the other colors so their rainbows look vibrant and beautiful.  Mission accomplished.  They learned a song that helps them remember: “Every time you need a new color you rinse your Brush, Then you give it a little Squish.”

K-2 then took their rainbos and learned about space; specifically negative space and how you can create lines using negative space.  Now they have all types of lines, wavy, zigzag and straight.  The students reflected after the project and decided that this art project uses these elements of art: color, line, and space.  Great job K-2!
