Arches in Colour
In this activity, children will produce an abstract artwork using colour theory. They will learn about colour combinations, delving into primary, secondary & complementary colours. Children will explore how colour and shapes work together to evoke feelings such as happiness, calmness, and optimism.
This activity is based on Kadinsky’s study in colour artwork. Kadinsky believes when certain colours are placed together they create emotions and feelings. He uses concentric circles for his practice. You can experiment with different shapes and explore your favourite colour combinations.
