Carrie's lesson 7-8yr olds
Sticking with the theme of colour, we started the day with a discussion about primary, secondary and teriary colours- making parallels with the school system. The children chose a limited colour palette of two acrylic primaries and white, and were challenged to make as many colours as possible from these to paint a checkerboard style painting.
These were left to dry over the lunch period so they could be printed over for the next stage.
Using polystyrene printing blocks, the children planned a design that had an element of symmetry and used the four mid points of their square, to create a design that could repeat.
