A Color Puzzle

That was the title of last week's art lesson.  The idea was to blend the primary colors to make the secondary colors.  But leave it to me to look for the easy way out--we used highlighters to color the shapes (except for Banana Boy who used colored pencils) and we just used the appropriate color highlighter for the blended area (ie: instead of mixing pink and blue, we colored with the purple highlighter)  So the shapes are primary colors, except where they overlap to make the secondaries.  Cool, huh?






Banana Boy's  (and I must say, it is an experience to do color art actvities with a color-blind child!)  


Actually, I just noticed now, when proofing this, that he colored the overlap between the red triangle and the yellow square at the top of the picture green!
