This looks like a rainbow coming through a window! But this rainbow isn’t made of light. What do you think it’s made of?
These fake rainbows are made from hundreds of pieces of string! They’re made by Mexican-born artist Gabriel Dawe.
You can make rainbow string art, too, if you have some pushpins (or nails) to wrap colorful string around!
Most people use crayons like this when coloring rainbows. But if you get crayons HOT, there’s another way to make a rainbow...
Hot crayons melt—so the crayons can drip and create a rainbow! This artist is using a special tool that blows REALLY hot air!
Can you tell what this is a picture of? (It’s a close-up picture of something you’ve probably seen before!)
They’re soap bubbles, which have rainbow colors! A single bubble is round, but when many are next to each other, they look like this.
Look at this video an artist made! If you look closely at soap bubbles, you may notice the liquid and colors moving and swirling.
Watch how the light moves as people turn the glass shapes. But if you add even more glass, something else happens (next slide)...
This art is also made using light and glass! Different kinds of glass are tilted in just the right way to make amazing colors on the walls.
Shadows are normally gray or black. Can you think of any way to get a shadow to be a different color, like pink?
Gray shadows are made when white light shines on things. But if you use blue, green, and red lights, they make shadows like these!
