Intellectual-development activity: Help your family explore color schemes and learn about complementary, split-complementary, analogous, monochromatic, tetrad, triad, and square color schemes! Then invite them to make a simple art project inspired by the popular stained-glass sidewalk chalk displays that were so popular earlier this year.
Simply use 1/4" repositionable masking tape to create a stained-glass design on cardstock. Then pull some acrylic paints in the various types of color schemes and let your family use them to create beautiful art pieces!
This process of painting helps anyone feel like a successful artist because using a color scheme creates unity in the project! And knowing about the various color schemes can help in so many ways in life—from outfit selection to home decor to art projects at school.
