1 Make your own colour scheme Which 20 colours suit you best? Choose 20 of your favourite colours out of the different stacks on the tables. Make sure to group harmonious colours together. Discuss the place of the colours with a classmate before you put them in the frames. You will use your colour scheme in one of your next assignments. Harmonious colours: colours which can be found next to each other in the colour wheel, such as yellow-green and green. 7

2 Mixing and naming colours assignment o Draw ten frames on a sheet of small drawing paper. The frames must be about 3 x 3 cm. o Use the bottles of paint in Art class to mix ten different colours. o EVERY COLOUR MUST BE A MIXTURE OF AT LEAST TWO OTHER COLOURS o Paint each of the frames in a different colour. o Work neatly! When dry, cut out and paste your colours on the next page. o You must then give each of the ten colours an different name. Make sure that the names suit the colour that you have created and that they sound interesting (grass green or sky blue are way too boring!). Below are a few examples to give ideas for the sorts of names that you might use. Remember, make them interesting!! 8

4 The light we see contains all kinds of colours. In fact, the light we call white contains all the visible colours. We can see these colours if we shine a white light through a prism. Raindrops can also work as a prism. When that happens we can see a rainbow. Write down the colours of a rainbow from the outside to the inside. 1. Paste a picture of a rainbow neatly in the frame Not every colour is visible to the human eye. Examples of colours that human beings cannot see are ultraviolet (UV) and infrared. When light hits an object, some of it is absorbed, and some of it is reflected depending on the material the object is made of. The light that is reflected is what we see as the colour of an object. These are the visible colours. Can you see all the colours? Give it a try! Click on these pictures and do the tests on colour blindness. ( ( And?. 10

5 wheel Red, yellow and blue are called primary colours, because they cannot be made by mixing other colours. Green orange and violet are the three secondary colours, and they are created by mixing two primary colours in equal amounts. When you mix up a primary colour with a secondary colour, you get a tertiary colour, such as blue-purple or brown. Tint, tone and shade Every individual colour can be altered by changing its colour through tinting, toning and shading. Tint is simply any colour with white added to it. Adding grey to a colour produces a tone. A shade is created by adding black. 11

6 Primary, secondary and tertiary colours s on the colour wheel. Tint, tone and shade Every individual colour can be altered by changing its colour through tinting, toning and shading. Harmonious colours s which can be found next to each other in the colour wheel, such as yellow-green and green. Complementary colours s which can be found opposite to each other in the colour wheel, such as yellow and purple, red and green and blue and orange. Light-dark contrast This is the contrast created when you put a light colour next to a dark colour. Warm-cold contrast A common way for people to categorize colours is by temperature. Red, orange and yellow are referred to as warm, because they can easily be associated with a warm, sunny day. Blues, violets and greens on the other hand are called cool because they often come to mind when thinking of rainy days. Hue contrast This is the contrast created by saturated colours (pure colours) next to other saturated colours. Only hues are used. Also known as a colour-colour contrast. Quality contrast This is the contrast created when you paint a saturated colour next to a unsaturated colour (colours mixed with white, black or grey). Quantity contrast This is the contrast created when a large amount of a colour is put next to a little bit of another colour. Symbolic colours Symbolic colours have a deep meaning, but that meaning is not universal, but varies by culture. 12

Understanding the effects that colours have on you will help you read an artwork and help you develop your own interpretation of it. Additionally, when making your own artwork, knowing the effect colours have on others, will help you to control the messages you hope to express.

Artists can express emotions in other ways. Look at the pictures and describe the expression you can see on the faces of the people in these works of art. Describe whether the use of colour makes this expression stronger. Artist unknown Rembrandt Pupil s work of art 17
