For art this term, we are going to working with the medium of paints. Kōtuku Whānau will be working with Rachel as our mentor to help support our programme. Before we get the paints out we are learning about the colour wheel. The colour wheel is a great way of learning about how colours are formed and also to help us develop an understanding of which colours go well together. We learned about primary, secondary and tertiary colours.
Rachel explains how primary, secondary and tertiary colours are made.
Making our own colour wheel models.
Asking and answering questions to check our understanding.
Now ... check out this amazing video which shows how colours can magically 'disappear', right before our very eyes!
(You might even like to complete this experiment and bring it in to school to show us yourself.)
