Planning and painting

Continuing with our abstract expressionism painting unit, based around the works of Mark Rothko, this week the children started planning for their final piece.

We have examined the psychology of colour and learned about both harmonious and complementary colours and warm and cool colours. Using what we had learnt, the children thought about the emotion they wanted their art to express and then how they would achieve this. They then experimented with their colour choices and the composition of their pictures.
