In this class I introduced the first element, Colour. I talked to the children about the Primary colours and how they can be mixed to make the Secondary colours. This was followed by a demonstration on paper of how colour mixing is done.
Then the children had a go at this exercise as well, using a limited palette of red, yellow, and blue.
The second half of the class was a little improvisation exercise based on the same colour-mixing theme. I asked the children to fold their paper in half, paint on one-half, fold and rub their paint to create a symmetrical design. When the paint has dried, they could cut them into interesting shapes. I did a quick demo using a butterfly shape, and some of the children decided that they wanted the same.
