Colour theory

Pupils will build upon skills and knowledge already gained in my previous school. They will gain confidence in my own abilities and learn new skills. Pupils will be encouraged to experiment and enjoy working with new materials and disciplines and learn to explore different uses of materials, how colour affects the world in which we live. Through different experiences, pupils will develop skills in material handling, be able to demonstrate knowledge of different colours and mix them appropriately.
