Art Investigation with Kids: Mixing paint colors!

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

If your kid is craving creativity, but your feeling uninspired, don’t underestimate the power of experimentation.  Get out some paper plates.  Pour a few circles of different colored acrylic paints and encourage kids to mix, blend, stir, and swirl.  Don’t forget to include white because it offers a fabulous way to subtly change colors.

Not only will your little artist have fun, she will also learn so much about the building blocks of color.

In the end, they might even discover their favorite shade of blue.

Have fun!
