Colour wheel, hue, primary colour, secondary colour. 


This terms art project (as the name suggests) is all about mixing colours! The children will learn about basic colour theory by studying the colour wheel and colour mixing. We will explore primary and secondary colours and how artists uses colour in their artwork. After learning about primary and secondary colours and experimenting with mixing, we will be creating our own piece of artwork.
