This package includes a lesson plan and a wealth of images and templates to carry out 4 different art activities. We spent the full day focusing on art from different artists such as
Romero Britto
and many more.
The learning objective is:
How do I create different tones of one colour using different media, exploring shape and pattern?

Success Criteria:
I can discuss the work of artists.
I can mix paint to create different shades of blue.
I can keep the colours clean by using a clean brush to mix.
I can make an observational drawing
I can combine pastel colours to create an illusion of colours mixing.
I can create a repeating pattern using tone to add depth.

Children will create 4 different art pieces using many different techniques all based around our theme of the colour blue.
