We will actually start out by painting and mixing the colors on separate paper and then cutting out shapes and arranging on another paper. This way everything can be arranged and done neatly.
We have 4 vocabulary words for this art lesson
1. Primary Colors - Blue, Red & Yellow - These colors make the rest of the colors
2. Secondary Colors - Orange, Purple & Green -These colors are created when you mix 2 Primary Colors together
3. Intermediate Colors - These colors are in between a Primary & Secondary color - like yellow-green or red-orange
4. Complimentary Colors - These are colors opposite on the color wheel - like Red & Green, Blue & Orange and Yellow & Purple
