After reading Ellen Stoll Walsh's book "Mouse Paint", children are introduced to primary and secondary colors through a color mixing art lesson. You as a teacher will be taken step by step through this 2 class period lesson. Young artists will first blend colors to make a rainbow background. On the second day they will add an adorable mouse that tracks footprints on the page! This lesson can easily be extended to 3 class periods if needed.
