Year One are proudly showing off their latest mixed media pictures. They can now identify and mix palettes of warm and cool colours.
Warm colours are made mostly of reds, oranges and yellows. This family of colours is called warm because they remind you of warm things like the sun or fire. Vincent van Gogh used warm colors in his famous painting of sunflowers.
Cool colours are made mostly of green, blue and violet. This family of colours is called cool because they remind you of cool things like a cool forest or a cold lake. Claude Monet used cool colours to suggest the quiet pond in his famous garden in his series of waterlilies paintings.
Imagine the children’s delight when later in the week, their paintings took pride of place on our walls in Fellside!
