Secondary Birds

In Art class, 5th graders reviewed the primary colors; red, yellow and blue and the secondary colors; orange, green and purple. Students “took at walk” with their paint brushes as they created an abstract painting using the primary colors to create the secondary colors.
Next, students used their cutting and gluing skills to create these magnificent birds!


  1. Love, love , love, love LOVE these! What a great lesson! Combines so many facets of art. I'm saving this one! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Gorgeous! Color mixing, painting, stamping, cutting... Patty's right, this lesson has it all.

  3. Thanks everyone!I've done this lesson w/3rd grade w/out the boarder. I think the 5th graders really did a nice job!
