Grade 3 Complementary Colours

The students were challenged to apply their knowledge of colour theory by selecting colours for the background that complemented the colour of their fruit and veg prints. They found out which was the complementary colour by looking at the colour wheel and finding the opposite colour on the wheel. They also discussed a cut-out painting by Matisse using important art vocabulary! They did a great job!

Monoprinting #1

As part of their inquiry into how the world works, students investigated the natural habitat around the school collecting objects to focus their print work on. While drawing from observation they focused on line, learning about continuous, broken, thick, thin, straight and curly lines…

They also learnt a bit more information about Matisse and discussed one of his works using some elements of art vocabulary.
