My 8th graders began their egg tempera artworks today. They used powder tempera as pigment, egg yolk as binder, and water as solvent. Students mixed paint as they needed it at their tables.

After class, as students were filing out I overheard several variations of, ” I thought that was gonna be boring, but it was awesome and fun.”

They’re bummed that I’m absent tomorrow and they’ll have to wait until my return to continue.
