Painting progression through the junior classes

First and second Class

Continuing with the experimentation, children need to gain greater control over the range of applicators used. They need to explore how the consistency can be altered by the addition of water alone. Increasing the use of colour vocabulary may lead to exploration of hues for example, creating bright and dull primary colours.

Children should know and name primary and secondary colours. They should experiment with combining secondary colours to form different browns, (tertiary colours). They should have looked at how artists have used colour and have experimented with some of their techniques. Children could be encouraged to include other media into their paintings.
