Project Overview

Pre-kindergarten students at Capital City Charter School in Washington, D.C. worked on an intensive study about color mixing and the connection between colors and feelings. Children explored emotion, food, places, and special objects through color and created original stories to describe their favorite colors. Children created a painting with colors they had named themselves, having been asked to choose colors they loved the most.
