Using colour to create an artwork

visual arts

Activity 1:

To use colour to create an artwork as an individual or in a group

[lo 3.8]

Example of the colour wheel:

Revision of the colour wheel

Study the colour wheel above and answer the following questions:

  1. Name the three PRIMARY COLOURS on the colour wheel.
  2. Name the three SECONDARY COLOURS on the colour wheel.
  3. Name two WARM colours.
  4. Name two COOL/COLD colours.
  5. What do we call the colours that we get when we mix a primary colour with a secondary colour?
  6. Name two pairs of COMPLEMENTARY COLOURS on the colour wheel.
  8. Explain how a yellow-green is mixed.
  • Discuss within your group what a landscape is and draw up a list of 10 objects found in a landscape.
  • Now draw a real or imaginary landscape on A3 size paper, using a pencil.
  • When you have completed this, draw the same landscape onto a second sheet of paper. You now have two similar landscapes . Swap your copied landscape with someone sitting next to you.
  • Paint the first landscape, using complementary colours and the second one using analogous colours .

Activity 2:

To use textures to create an artwork

[lo 3.8]


Bring a collection of 10 different textures to school by means of frottage . Frottage is a technique through which an image is attained by placing a sheet of paper over a textured object and using a soft pencil (2B, 4B or 6B) for rubbing across the surface of the paper. A familiar example is obtained by placing a coin under a piece of paper and rubbing over the paper with a pencil.

Think of getting textures from examples such as: shoe soles, brick walls, wooden floors, different materials, etc.

Divide your textures into the following:


When you are working in the classroom, the group must divide a poster-sized sheet of paper into four equal parts. Then you must draw your frottage textures into these spaces. Each learner must have at least one chance to draw his or her textures into each space (quarter of the sheet of paper).

Colour can now be added, so that each quarter represents a season of the year. SUMMER can have lots of yellows, WINTER can have BLUES, SPRING can have GREENS or PURPLES and AUTUMN can have ORANGES, or a choice of any other colours. Each group must be allowed to decide which colours will be used to represent the different seasons.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
