Colour mixing

We have been learning all about colours and colour mixing. We read a fantastic book called ‘Mixed’ by Arree Chung’. It tells a story of a city of Blues, Reds and Yellows who do not get along. Eventually, a Blue mixes with a Yellow and they create a beautiful baby – Green! After this the city becomes a wonderful mix of colours. We explored all of the colours we could create using just blue, red and yellow paint. We also used water and food colouring to experiment with how these would mix together on a piece of kitchen towel.

We were also able to apply our colour mixing skills to create self portraits. We spent a lot of time looking at ourselves and celebrating our uniqueness.
