Last project we mixed red and yellow to get orange – with tempera paint… this time we mixed red and blue to make purple with water color paint. We read the book There’s a Nightmare in My Closet and discussed the difference between organic and geometric shapes. We then drew monsters with a black crayon using those newly identified shapes. Then students watched me paint with red and blue water color paints to get purple. I never thought there was such things as “cute” monsters… but I’m sure you’ll see – THERE ARE!
