Colour Mixing with Hermit Crabs!

The Hermit Crabs’ new topic ‘Udderly Amoozing!’ is well under way.  This week, the children have been taught some basic acrylic skills and have been experimenting with acrylic paints.  They have also been taught some basic brush control skills and have completed a series of painting exercises.  On Wednesday, the children were re-introduced to the ‘colour wheel’ and spent time applying their knowledge of colour mixing to make secondary and tertiary colours.  The children are very much looking forward to applying their colour mixing and brush control skills when they paint their first picture in the style of Steven Brown next week.
