Personal and social skills

Module 1

Visual arts: colour

Activity 1: (individual)

[lo 3.6]

A quantity of fruit and vegetables is arranged in the classroom. You must select a portion of what you see to draw and then to paint. But first make a small rectangular frame that will help you to select a portion of what you see to make a satisfactory composition.

Take a piece of paper, fold it in half and then cut or tear:

Look through the frame and select the part of the arrangement that you want to draw. Before you begin to draw, answer the following questions:

I can’t see more than three fruits and/or vegetables inside my frame. Is this true or false?

The fruit or vegetable with the strongest colour are more or less in the middle of my frame. True or false?

What I see through my frame does not make one side look heavier than the other side. True or false?

If one or more of the statements are false, you must move your frame so that it will be true.

Draw the portion you see through your frame on your paper.

Choose any geometric shape, for example a circle, a square, a rectangle, etc. and draw this over your drawing. Paint everything inside of the geometric shape with warm colours and everything outside of the shape with cold colours. Ask your educator to tell you about warm and cold colours.

Then use primary colours to paint the fruit or/and vegetables. Remember that you can mix them to make secondary colours. You can also use black and white to make your colours darker or lighter. You may mix your primary and secondary colours so as to get tertiary colours.


The learner is able to: 1 2 3 4
Follow instructions
Accept responsibility for their own work
Distinguish between warm and cold colours
Create a satisfactory composition
Use tertiary colours
Create light and dark tone values

Activity 2: (group work/individual)

[lo 3.6]

Working in your groups, each of you will now be making a fruit or vegetable from paper maché . This fruit/vegetable will be one that is indigenous to Africa. (Paper maché is a mixture of starch or wallpaper glue and torn up pieces of newspaper.)

Use the round shapes that your educator has asked you to bring to school and paste down the first layer of pieces of paper which have been soaked in the starch or wall paper glue. Make sure that your pieces of paper overlap!

Once this has dried a little, you must apply the second layer on top of the first and continue in this way. To build the shape of the fruit you will have to use the paper maché almost like clay – take some of the pieces of soaked paper in your hand and squeeze out the excess moisture/glue/starch. You can then form this into the shapes you need to add to the basic round shape.You are building a three-dimensional object . This is not flat like a piece of two-dimensional (length and breadth) paper.

When the fruit or vegetable you are making has dried and has become hard, it can be painted. Each group must decide together what to do with their fruit and vegetables. You could put it into a bowl or use it as props for the drama classes.
