Color Symbolism and Colours That Go Together Updated October 28, 2015. Color symbolism is the use of color to represent traditional, cultural, or religious ideas, concepts, or feelings or to evoke physical reactions. Jump right to one of the colors or color groups I cover in detail or scroll past the color list for more general discussion of color meanings and how color works.

Art in the Big Green Room: 2nd grade ROBOTS I have (secretly) been humming Beastie Boys Intergalactic song in my head for the past few weeks while my 2nd graders have been composing these robot pieces.

Turned out it was perfect for the robot background!) After seeing a post at Teach Kids Art blog, I challenged the kids to paint squares on a piece of 12 x 12 paper. The catch was that I wanted them to try and make every square a different color.

Paper City Paris! Voilà, Paper City Paris! I’ve been working on this for a very long time now and had so much fun creating it.
