Colour mixing

Lesson: Art and design

Class: Year 2 Year: 2015 - 2016

As part of our artwork we use lots of colours.... whether paint, pens, pastels, chalks.

So we need to know how to blend or mix our colours to create different shades and combinations.

Like printer ink there are 3 colours that can be mixed to create all the colours we need... red, yellow, blue.

To make our colours lighter we would add white, darker colours can be made by adding black.

Have a look at us at work...


Keep checking our page to see which other colours we can make... 

After we had explored our colour mixing we applied our knowledge to mix colours and paint our Elmer Elephants.
