We have been learning about colour mixing. We mixed red and yellow to make different shades of orange as well as blue and yellow to make different shades of green. We then painted a sunflower just like Vincent Van Gogh. Here we are working hard to mix our beautiful orange tones.
We have been learning about the primary colours. We looked at artwork by the Dutch artist Pietr Mondrian who used primary colours as well as squares and rectangles to create a painting called Composition with Red Blue and Yellow. We created our own versions of the painting using strips of black paper to create the shapes and then painting one square or rectangle with a primary colour. We love our Art lessons!
