Painting - Getting Started Children of all ages enjoy painting. It is both relaxing and therapeutic, providing an opportunity for children to develop their own ideas and express their feelings. Find more painting ideas on www.playresource.org/ howtovideos Encourage children to explore their imagination by using open ended themes e.g. aerial view, monsters and dragons, storm at sea and pond life. Themes such as my world, a visit to the seaside and my street allow children to relate their own story. Children through painting develop new skills - fine motor skills, hand eye co-ordination, observation skills and awareness of colour, shape, texture and scale. Exploring Colour Present children with a variety of different coloured items (we chose an apple, orange, banana and a ball) and ask them to arrange them according to colours that look good together or into a group of similar colours. Discuss warm colours - red, orange, brown and yellow, and cold colours - blue, green and violet. Ask children to group the items into hot and cold colours, compare and contrast the colour groups and explore how different colours make you feel Children will discover that colour can be used to set a mood, express an emotion and create visual Starry Night by Van Gogh tension. Discuss with children the colours they like to see together, ask them how they would feel surrounded by colours in the warm group or colours in the cool group A Little Colour History Our understanding of colour came from Sir Isaac Newton’s discovery that light can be split into all the colours of the rainbow when passed through a triangular prism and then when passed through a second prism recombine to form white light. The colours of the spectrum are red, orange yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Colours in nature exist as wavelengths that make up light. The shortest wavelength is violet through to red which has the longest. When colours are combined millions of shades can be created. Aspects of Colour Hue is what identifies colours, it includes: • Primary colours - red, yellow and blue • Secondary colours - green, purple, and orange which are produced by mixing 2 primary colours • Tertiaries which are produced by mixing 2 secondary colours. Tone is the lightness and darkness of a colour. It can be altered by mixing a colour with white or black. Saturation is a colour’s depth of colourfulness and its freedom from grey. Colour and light create a powerful sense of space. In nature colour loses its intensity and distinctness at a distance because of the increasing atmosphere through which it is seen. The short wavelengths of blue light which travel through the atmosphere are seen more easily than the longer wavelengths of red which is why colour appears paler and bluer towards the horizon. www.playresource.org - Painting - Getting Started 1
