Year 3 Art 'Contrast and Complement'

Year 3 have been exploring the colour wheel and expanding their knowledge of how colours are used together.

They have been creating secondary colours which are made from mixing two primary colours (red. blue, and yellow), tertiary colours which are made from mixing secondary and primary colours together.

They have been further exploring how colours can contrast and complement each other and how some colours represent warmth and coolness and can convey emotions. They have been studying paintings to see how artists use these aspects in their work. They will then create their own piece using contrast and complementing colours and deciding how to use warm and cool colours in their own work.
