My brilliant idea - Bright idea

ArtPSHE

Ages 5-11

Play music with Windows Media Player and use an interactive whiteboard to show the patterns and colours generated. Discuss how it's possible to convey feelings through colour and patterns, such as red for anger or warmth and blue for calmness. Link this with any artists the children have encountered and discuss how pattern and colour can reveal an artist's state of mind - Van Gogh is a good example.

Groups then use different media such as crayons or paints, focusing on an emotion. At the end they can discuss the feelings in each picture and the artist can join in. Visit www.colour-affects.co.ukpsyprop.html.
