Get into the spirit of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, with this 'hidden' modern art, abstract style Olympic Torch creative activity. Encourage students to explore colour - perhaps the 5 olympic rings colours? Discuss how to make the torch and flame 'stand out' or 'recede' from the background. Experiment with pens, paints, pastels, felt tips - if you have more time, introduce doodles, patterns or collage within the shapes. The free download includes both the outline template and digitally coloured example. Use the finished torches for decorative bunting, journal covers or a classroom wall display. Use this creative activity to discuss the history of the Olympic torch relay and it's journey for this year's Rio Olympic Games.
