Because the programming, indoctrination and conditioning has not yet been fully beaten into them.

Easy... carcasses hung from trees are blue from the lack of blood flow, and the grass is red because gravity causes the spilled blood to accumulate there.

Re: Question: Why children paint trees blue or grass red?
no. well, maybe for some...
but some do that because they know that they can.
when you create, you are in control - there are no real laws or rules - if you want red grass and a green sky and talking cats with wings then you got it.
they know the grass is green, but they want it to be red because its new and fun to see new things.

never saw a blue tree yet. 10 years with children & art... even autistic kids use green and brown, though some like to draw aliens.

Re: Question: Why children paint trees blue or grass red?
Remembering back....

When I painted things the "wrong" color I was either trying to be different and not one of the group OR...

I had issues with the paint or crayons.

I remember being forced to stay in at recess with a VERY angry teacher repainting a picture because the grass in it was bluish purple.

The fact was, I just didn't know how to mix blue and yellow to make green and the Yellow had been mixed with other colors anyway, so I ended up with brown grass.

That was marginally acceptable apparently, but that teacher DID try to have me places in special ed...

Luckily my Mother said NO. :)

It turns out that my I.Q. was simply off the scale In a positive direction and that the teacher couldn't understand me because I was more intelligent than she was.

Go figure!

Later, over the course of years, I did learn to paint with the "right" colors and dumb down the things I was saying so that I was understood most of the time.

Children do not always draw trees blue, are more inspired by the Christmas period Lol
