Mini Rothko

Let's make our own Mini Rothko using recycled materials! The American Artist Mark Rothko liked to paint pictures with lots of colors. He thought that using color was the perfect way to express emotion. He came up with a new art form called Colorfield- that looks a lot like a field of color! We'll explore our own color fields today as we create a Mini Rothko.
