After last week's struggle with mixing colours using crayons, I decided to let the children try a variation of the exercise using temperat paint. The first exercise was more structured in the sense that a template was given for the children to fill in, so that they get an idea of how the different primaries work together.
Then we tried out a still life painting that continued the exercise on colour gradation. I place several ripening mangoes in the middle of the tables for the children to paint, all the while reminding them to apply their knowledge of colour gradation and mixing.
