This lesson is about colour. We will discuss colour theory and cover colour temperature, complementary and analogous colours, primary, secondary and tertiary colours, the difference between hue, tone and value, as well as shade and tint.
The activity will be oil pastels on pastel paper with etching techniques.
We will draw and colour a hibisicus flower inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s flowers – the way she painted close ups of flowers and the way she focused on their colours and shapes.
There will be two activities and they are separated by age groups.
