IMAG1519_1Since it’s St. Patrick’s Day this Monday, I decided to talk about monochrome and how to make the color green. Art Club children (8-14 year olds) know that blue and yellow make green, but for the most part, they haven’t experienced making it and the many hues of green. Each participants got a 6″x6″ piece of posterboard and drew a picture on it. Then they learned how to mix blue and yellow and make green; from very dark to very light green. Each made their own green palette and proceeded to paint their image.
