Greeting friends! Jessica here from scrumdilly-do! I am delighted to share with you a project I did in my first grade class with a visiting art teacher. We created our circles with black paint and used crayon to add our color. I recently happened upon my happy paper of circles and thought how much fun it would be to revisit it with brighter colors and markers for a more fine line feel to it all. Are you ready? The beauty of this project is that you can let your kiddos go wild with color or you can limit their color palette to all one color or two colors, complimentary colors or more. You can make this on a L A R G E scale or a teeny tiny scale, it all depends on the circumference (lookie, I have even supplied you with new vocabulary words) of your largest circle.
Set up your plates with your paint. Here we used two shades of blue and
two different sized containers. Dip your container into the paint. And
make a print on your paper.
Repeat the printing process until you have covered your paper with a circus of paint-happy circles. Here is where you can change it up by using only one color, two colors or a trio of happy colors.
