COLOURING OUR DAYS IN VISUAL ARTS

For all year levels, colour is a fun, ongoing focus in Visual Arts throughout the year. Foundation and Junior students learn about the primary colours and later, enjoy discovering the secondary colours by mixing red, blue and yellow paints.

In Years 3 and 4, the children expand their knowledge of the colour wheel with a study of the concept ‘warm’ and ‘cool’, applying this knowledge to paper craft activities also.

Students in the senior school look more closely at the variations of colour, developing an awareness of complementary colours, tints, shades and how artists use colour to affect people’s emotions.
