Primary Popsicles

Primary Popsicles

I found this awesome lesson for my 2nd graders over at Mrs. Knight’s Smartist Artists. We reviewed pop art and Wayne Thiebaud with this and then reviewed the color wheel and color mixing. We also watched Scratch Garden’s video The Color Song. 

We had our discussion and painted the paper in the first class with the primary colors for the Popsicles. 

Then the second class was spent creating the background with secondary colors and then making the Popsicles. We were just barely able to get all those steps in on the second day.
