More Mondrian and The Taste of Clarkston

A kindergarten lesson I do every year. I decided at one school to have the students fill in the spaces with washable markers and then let the students use water to "Color" the space. At the other school I used Alphacakes and I definitely like the painted lesson much better.
My Boys enjoying the great food!


  1. What is an alphacake? Is it gouache? tempera?

    I Googled it and came up with nada.

    Thank you!

  2. Aka, Alpha or Biggies. They are tempera and really last a long time. I'm just replacing a set I've used for five years with over 500 students. It's a big investment at first but last. They're like watercolors and you have to let them sit out and dry with the lids off overnight. Here's the link to School Specialty/Saxs, where I order them. okay the link is not working, but if you google Sax or school specialty, then paint you should find them.
