Arts and Crafts icon

This is a part of the 2021 4-H Summer Learning Series.

In the movie Inside Out, Riley’s emotions Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust are represented by different colors. In painting, we can use different colors to represent how we feel and what we want to express when we paint. What colors best represent your emotions when you are happy or sad? Can you show how you feel through your painting?

In this two-part workshop, we will talk about color theory, how to mix paint to make new colors, and how we can use color to express different emotions. Participants will have the opportunity to create abstract paintings using what they learn in each workshop, and then share them with the rest of the group.  Registration deadline: July 7, as materials will be mailed to participants’ homes.

Open to Maine youth of all ages

Maximum 12 attendees
