1st grade- Rainbow Paintings

The first grade will learn the order of the colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.  We will learn that indigo is a blue-violet hue.  An easy way to remember the order of the rainbow is Roy G. Biv.  

We will look at Peter Paul Rubens’s painting The Rainbow Landscape (painted in 1636) .  What do you see in this artwork?  

We will create our own rainbow landscape paintings and even learn to mix orange and indigo!
