Contrast and Complement


This project teaches children about colour theory by studying the colour wheel and colour mixing. It includes an exploration of tertiary colours, warm and cool colours, complementary colours and analogous colours, and how artists use colour in their artwork.

Children  will have the opportunity to explore a range of different types of paint and their properties. In this project, children will use watercolour paints, either from tubes or watercolour paint blocks.
