Welcome to Digital Learning! 

I will be posting some fun “non-technology” activities here throughout the next few weeks.  Students, you will need some parent help and guidance with these activities.  Have fun and please let me know how I can help!  I would love to see pictures and hear all about it when you are finished each week.  🙂

How to Make Homemade Tempera Paints:

https://tinkerlab.com/make-your-own-egg-tempera-paint/

Leonardo da Vinci used natural materials to create his paint colors.  What do you have at home that you can use to mix with water or egg to create paints?

  • Look in your pantry and on your spice rack for these ingredients: paprika, turmeric, beets, cinnamon, tea leaves, blueberries, strawberries
  • Go outside and look for berries, flowers and red clay.

What materials created the best paints?  Did any of the colors surprise you?  Were you disappointed by any of the colors?

Did you find something else that created a beautiful paint color?  Let me know!

Happy painting!  And don’t forget to smell your art when you are finished!

I would love to see pictures and hear all about it when you are finished!
