Color Expressions

Today was my second of 4 sessions scheduled to field test my new art residency with my teacher partner Sandra Alger. I taught the second graders 3 paper decorating techniques to create unique textures- paste paper, and watercolor using plastic wrap and salt. We explored how color expresses ideas about people, places and events. The kids really got into the lesson. The papers will be used later to make pictures of their special relative.
