In this activity for families, the role of pigments in the plant world and the use that humans have made of them will be explained. A chromatography demonstration will be carried out in which the different pigments present in spinach leaves and beets are separated. It will end with a workshop where attendees participate in the creation of homemade temperas from flour and natural pigments that can be found in any kitchen (turmeric, paprika, blueberry, spinach) and can paint a picture to take with them as a souvenir.
