Kindergarten Shape Paintings

Take a look at these vibrant Kindergarten paintings! Here is how I was able to break this project down into three 35 minute classes:

Day 1

We began by learning about geometric and organic shapes. After drawing 6 or more shapes onto their paper we traced our drawings with black paint. 

Day 2

Today was all about color! We learned how to use the primary colors to create secondary colors and painted the inside of our shapes.

Day 3

We reviewed the primary and secondary colors, choosing one color for our background. We then learned about value and how we can add white to a color to make it lighter (tinting). We finished our work by painting the space behind our shapes. 

Overall this was a great way to introduce basic skills and techniques while also learning painting routines and procedures.
