Complementary Colours R9

Love the smiles.

Great background






7 year olds.
It was School Athletics day on Wednesday. The children could relate to this as a subject for our art lesson.

I had one of the little wooden mannequins which the children used to draw their runners. I asked for two runners in competition with one another. They made a practice drawing, treating the limbs as two sausages etc. On their final drawing they used the practice as a guide.
After drawing their picture using black crayons, the held it up to the window and copied it onto a second page.
They coloured one picture with primary and secondary colours only. The second picture is coloured with the complimentary colours of the first. Skin colour was an exception.
