Andrew had spent about 20 minutes on his masterpiece. It included streaks of orange, blue dots and a kelly green shamrock. (It was, after all, St. Patrick’s Day.)
Then he put his artwork beneath the black light and he barely recognized it.
The orange glowed like the sun’s surface, the blue shimmered like Caribbean water and the shamrock was nearly translucent.
That’s what happens when you put fluorescent paint beneath a black light, Ms. Lisa explained.
Studio MPL is our art club for kids in first through fifth grade. They meet on the third Monday of each month.
This week, they learned about fluorescent paints—who created them, how to use them and how different types of light affect them.
The only way to know what they’re going to do next is to get in on the fun.
