2nd grade is learning about blending colors and the analogous colors on the color wheel. We used orange and yellow, and blue and green paint to create these drip monsters. Students used a straw to blow the paint to create the body, arms, and legs of their monster.
Then they used construction paper to make the face, and add details. I asked them to give their monsters personality. They were also told not to copy anyone, since they have a hard time with that sometimes. We still ended up with quite a few “artist” monsters!! I couldn’t say no to that!! Oh and of course I made sure that each student gave their monster an iris, pupil, and reflection of light in each eye!
