WALT: understand the mixing of primary colours and how to create tone.
For Art this week, we would love it if you could get your paints out and have a go at mixing the primary colours to see what colours they make! Take a look at the colour wheel to help you. When you mix primary colours you create A SECONDARY COLOUR. For example, YELLOW + BLUE = GREEN. If you then mix GREEN with BLUE, you get a TERTIARY COLOUR of DARK GREEN.
TASK 1: Create your own colour wheel on a piece of paper or even a paper plate showing the different colours.
TASK 2: Tone is the lightness or darkness of a colour. Black can be used to make a colour darker and white can be used to make a colour lighter.
Choose a colour and keep adding a little more white to each time. What do you notice? Repeat for different colours. Can you create a chart one like the one below?
DON'T HAVE ANY PAINT AT HOME? NOT TO WORRY! GOOGLE TRYCOLORS.COM AND EXPERIMENT WITH MIXING DIFFERENT COLOURS VIRTUALLY. CAN YOU MAKE THEM LIGHTER AND DARKER?
