Dragons have mystified us for ages. They are known to be large and beast like, scaled and fierce, with fire breathing abilities and large wings. Who wouldn't like a dragon for a friend and protector. First grade students recently finished creating their own unique dragon figures with tempera paint. Students learned to carefully manage paints, choose and clean appropriate brushes, and, most importantly, how to work with the color wheel tool to mix primary and secondary colors resulting in many beautiful new mixed colors.
