These adorable leprechauns seem to be dancing a jig in the hallway! Using only secondary colors (purple, orange and green), second graders learned to mix color values. It was like magic- by only adding white, three colors turned into many. After that, they brainstormed possible characteristics of leprechauns. Although no one had seen a real leprechaun, it was decided most definitely that there are both boy AND girl leprechauns.
After painting, students glued a variety of secondary color textures to create interesting details. Sequined eyes were a big hit! Also, we found a bit of gold ribbon in the art room; what's a Leprechaun without a pot of gold, or a gold pocketbook?
