Warm and Cool Colours

Understanding how colours are mixed and the effect they can have on each other is an essential skill for a budding artist.

We talked about 'Primary" colours, those which we cannot make by mixing two other colours. The 'Secondary" colours made by mixing 2 primary colours together and then decided which were 'warm' and which were 'cool'.

We used chalk pastels to make coloured spots of our warm and cool colours, then turned them into creatures. Here is my example. The children were far more creative with their creatures!

The main task was to create an abstract or simple seascape using our warm and cool colours. We used the chalk pastels onto sugar paper and fixed them with a little hairspray.
