Art Is Finger Lickin' Good!

Third graders learned about color theory by mixing colored icing on graham crackers.  Using one side of the cracker as a palette, the students began by mixing the three primary colors of icing to make secondary colors.  They then added more of the primary colors to make intermediate colors. They continued exploring a variety of color combinations then painted an impressionistic painting on the other side of their graham cracker. After admiring and sharing their "masterpieces"  they ate them. Art is not only fun - it tastes good!
