Colour Mixing Display

The work on this display was used to give children experience of mixing colours. Each child was given a sheet of A4 paper. On the left side of the page, they painted a “stripe” with one colour. They then mixed in a small amount of a different colour and painted another stripe. This process was repeated, until stripes were painted all the way along the page. When the page was completely dry, it was cut into strips (going across the stripes). These were then laid on backing paper, in alternate directions.
