Art class: Colour wheels

A slight variation on colour mixing this week, with a bit of revision thrown in.  I wanted the children to see for themselves the effects of colour mixing using a dry medium (crayons) so that they would not think only wet medium is capable of being mixed, so I gave them a simple colour wheel to fill in.

After learning about the Primary and Secondary colours, the children now learned about Intermediary colours.  I explained that, in simple terms, intermediary colours are just different shades of secondary colours that are created by uneven proportions of two primary colours.

The children then got on with their exercise.  Admittedly, trying to create the different shades is very difficult to do with crayons, but the children did the exercise in good stride.

This post is linked up to several blog hops, where you can see what other homeschoolers have been busy with.
