How do artist create and use colour?
To begin the project, we used the morning block to talk about the colour wheel. We read the book “Mouse Paint” by Ellen Stoll Walsh and talked about how primary colours (red, yellow and blue) can be used to mix the secondary colors (purple, orange and green).
We then continued our conversation by watching at a powerpoint on youtube, that looks at the colour wheel.
We recapped coloring mixing a final time by talking about how we can create secondary colors by layering the primary coloured tissue papers. I gave a demo of the process for the students to follow.
Here are the pics of our art session on Friday.
