Mclaren Art Visit #1

Today Cory from the McLaren Art Gallery came to teach us about how to mix colors using a colour wheel.

We used paint to make our own colour wheels. We learned how to mix yellow and red to make orange. You can mix up red and blue and it makes purple. We mixed blue and yellow to make green. Red and white makes pink. You can’t make primary colours. The primary colours are blue, red and yellow.

We made paintings using cold or hot colours. The hot colours are red, yellow, orange and pink. The cold colours are purple, green, and blue.

Cory said that next week we are going to learn how to copy a painting by Monet.
