Rainbow Color Magic

This week we used acrylic paints for the first time with the children at Mother Earth's Art Program. I took the three primary colors along with white and black. They had never heard about primary colors before, so as I started mixing the colors after showing them the "Color Wheel", their jaws dropped and they looked at me as if I was somekind of magician. It was super cool to feel I had the power of rainbow magic on my hands. As I was mixing red with white, and showing them what came up, you could hear all of the girls' sighs at the pink's first glance.
It was hectic, I didn't stop for a moment delivering different colors to each particular group's demand. We literally had a blast! And I sure had to make them help me clean up afterwards!
