This week we are using color theory as a means for a unit study. Color theory is a wonderful way to introduce physics, vision (senses), art, literature and history.
Throughout the week, I will be providing you with resources, workbooks and activities that you can use to develop your own color theory lesson.
I hope you like it!
We've been really into shaving cream and paint as of late. It's easy to clean up and delivers brilliant, child-inspired results. Today we made shaving cream watercolor paintings.
What You Need:
How to Do It:
Color theory is an ideal topic to use for preschool, kindergarten, first grade and beyond, with each year getting a bit more scientific. For us, talking about color builds into a week-long unit study that art, math, science, history, and writing.
Today, I will teach you the basic information you need to teach color theory, build a color wheel and ideas for developing a unit study. Resources that we use will be given to, either as affiliate links or just good ole fashioned resource links across the homeschool/education web.
Just remember to have fun! Remember, this is designed for 3-6 year olds...not a third grader. Keep it simple. Keep it fun. Get a little messy.
Every homeschool educator has a specialty. Mine is science and writing. I love art and am a fairly decent artist, but in no way am I a skilled art teacher. That's okay. If you need help with a subject, the internet and your local area have amazing resources.
The links below will help you develop a Neoclassicism lesson to help kids learn and appreciate art.

A lot of art is happening this year -- while we don't have it scheduled like usual, we are taking our time as we work through different periods, artists, and styles. Today we are painting monsters. For this art lesson, you will need a few tools. I always buy mine from Blick instead of Amazon (which I buy sooooo many things on) because I trust where the products are coming. Wherever you get yours, alway make sure you are get quality supplies....and if online, free shipping. Shipping can be a real wallet thief.
