We don’t know about you, but when we were kids, the best part about going back to school in the fall was getting that new, pristine 64-count box of Crayola crayons! The possibilities seemed endless!
Understanding the colour wheel and colour harmonies, what works, what doesn’t and how colour communicates is just as exciting as that new box of crayons.
Students from Grade 1, 2 and 3 were introduced to the colour theory. The colour theory is both the science and art of using colour. It explains how humans perceive colour; and the visual effects of how colours mix, match or contrast with each other. The colour theory also involves the messages colours communicate and the methods used to replicate colour.
In the colour theory, colours are organized on a colour wheel and grouped into 3 categories: primary colours, secondary colours and tertiary colours.
See our video of students in Grades 1, 2 and 3 having fun demonstrating how colours are mixed together.
