Complementary Color Quilt Paintings.
Key Concepts: What are quilts?
What are complementary colors?
What are patterns?
We previously had done a fabric quilt square and I wanted to tie this project into their study of quilts already. We learned about the color wheel and complementary colors. The 1st graders chose a pair to paint their square. I had pre-drawn the rectangular rings around the center with pencil. They painted them in with alternating complementary colors. The next class period, they used any color oil pastel to draw patterns on top of the paint.
