Fifth grade students recently completed a science project related to their study the properties and changes of matter. The class conducted an experiment called “Chemistry as Art.” The experiment involved mixing different types of matter together to make paint.
Students created their own egg tempera paint and used it on poster board and clay. They enjoyed making their own paint and observing how you can mix egg yolks and liquid water color or food coloring to make paint. They were also surprised to find that this method has been used many years by artists as a paint medium. And, they created some amazing paintings as a result!
