Color Test and Marker Paints

Hi all! I am Miss Dayna, the lead art teacher over at Fishtown Rec Center along with my awesome assistant, Miss Becca. This is my second year seeing the kids over at Fishtown, and it was pretty cool to see lots of familiar faces again!

Miss Becca and I began our first class with the little ones (ages 4-6) by seeing what they knew about color and if they could put their knowledge onto paper via the color wheel. We could tell many students knew their colors, but getting it in the right order was trickier. The kids were asked the fill out the wheel all on their own and try their best.

Once students finished their first color wheel, we put the materials down and watched a science experiment! I showed the kids how to soak “dead markers” into water to create watercolor paint. I only soaked the primary colors – red, yellow, and blue – and watched carefully what happens when two primary colors mix! (shhh, you get secondary colors!)
