Lesson Description

In this class, children will learn to create art using contrasting colours. They will be taught to colour a cactus using this technique.

They will begin the class by sketching the cactus with a pencil. Then, they will learn how to colour the background using bright colours such as pink, blue and yellow. Following this, they will learn how to colour the cactus using black colour. The specific colours have been selected to help learners understand the technique of contrast.  After completing this class, children will understand how contrasting colours can be attention grabbing. The instructor will even provide an example to help them understand how the drawing will look with non contrasting colours.
