Visual arts 3 - colours
Colours - Colour Theory and Colour Balance

The use of colour is very important and often overlooked. In this session we will look at the importance of the pure use of colour to create art. Using coloured fabric we will create art installations, focusing on colour balance and relation. We will look at and consider the work of artists such as Jack Bush, Paul Klee, and Mark Rothko. Students will work all together, and in small groups. Teachers and assistants are encouraged to take photos of the large-scale installation before they are dismantled, creating ephemeral art based photo-documentation. Students will have the chance to create a small colour creation of their own to take home.
