Paint Investigations!

The boys and girls in Year 1 have been investigating how to paint with different thicknesses of brushes and how to mix paints to make secondary colours.

The topic began by using artists pencils to draw a variety of different lines.  They learnt that lines can be long or short, thick or thin and wriggly or straight.  Next we moved onto creating lines with paint.  The children experimented with the secondary colours, purple, orange and green, and used a variety of brushes.  We discovered it was harder to draw a pattern with a thick brush.

Finally we learnt how to make secondary colours using the primary colours.  They explored what happens when you mix a combination of these together to create new colours. The children had great fun making their own colours sums to show this.
