PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The following activity was developed for use in the primary classroom. The activity includes 2 different geometric designs for students to colour or paint using their knowledge of colour theory (mixing primary colours to create secondary colours), as well as a rubric for assessment.

Instructions: For this activity, students start by colouring the circles and triangles in primary colours - avoiding the spaces where shapes overlap. Then, students colour the spaces where shapes overlap, using colour theory to decide which secondary colour they should use. (see example below). Use the rubric to evaluate student work and understanding of colour theory.

NOTE: This activity is based upon the following Ontario, Canada visual arts curriculum expectation:

D1. apply the creative process to produce a variety of two- and three-dimensional art works, using elements, principles, and techniques of visual arts to communicate feelings, ideas, and understandings;

Listed in the fundamental concepts for grade 1 and 2 is the concept of colour: mixing of primary colours (red, yellow, blue) to create secondary colours (various colours made by mixing equal amounts of primary colours, such as violet, orange, green).

I've done this with grade 1 and grade 2 students. They enjoyed the activity and found the instructions easy to follow! It also gave me a good idea of how well they understood colour theory.
