Art - Colours

We have been learning all about colourthis term.


Artists we are learning about:

  • Piet Mondrian
  • Wassily Kandinsky



Primary colours can be mixed together to make other colours. We made a collage of our primary colours.


  • We know that the primary colours are red, yellow and blue.



Secondary colours are the colours we make when we mix our primary colours together. We had fun mixing our colours to see what new colour it would make. We made colour wheels.

  • We know that red and yellow make orange.
  • We know that yellow and blue make green.
  • We know that blue and red make purple.




We applied our knowledge primary and secondary colours to paint a picture in the style of Wassily Kandinsky. We also learned about neutral colours (brown, black, grey and white), warm and cool colours and mixing shades and tints to make lighter and darker colours.
