Primary Colour Gradients II


These primary colour gradients were painted by year 5 and 6 students. The process is simple but the results are striking. This is a slight variation on my original more detailed Primary Colour Gradient lesson. To read about the process involved please take a peek here.


This time around I supplied the students with cardboard shape tracers to cut out their chosen shape before sticking it onto the background gradient. Last time every child used a circle, but I realised that the results would be improved with more variation. What do you think?

  2. Really nice Joe. I loved your original circle project, but I think the angular shapes add another element of interest. Thanks again :) Elizabeth

  3. When I saw these, I immediately wanted to do them! They are visually striking to me and I think my classes will love them! I'm not sure which I like better, but am leaning toward the angular shapes over the circles. But only a bit. Love them both! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Joe, I can easily identify your class's work in the thumbnails on my blog list. It is distinctively you. I have used your original circle project twice. It's the basis for my bog header. This subtle change lends itself to greater things. Thank you.
