Art after school: the colour wheel

P1060601Our second art club thinking about colour.  Today we brought along a variety of media just in the primary colours of red, yellow and blue. The children started making a colourwheel with paint then experimented with pencils, crayons and even coloured fibres to see how they could be mixed to create the secondary colours and beyond.

Liz had raided the toybox and brought along an exciting selection of brightly coloured plastic toys to draw. P1060605After spending some time examining these the children used their new skills to create still life art mixing all the colours they needed from the three primary colours on the table. one ingenious person even managed to mix a pale pink!
