Art Club's Introduction to Colour Mixing

IMG_5367As I watched my Art Club paint the objects they had made, I realised how much they preferred to play safe with colours, using colours as they came and not bothering to mix.  So the next week I took a picture of two tigers from the exhibition, chopped it up and gave them a section each to draw and then paint.  Pretty challenging for 5 - 10 year olds, but they embraced it!
