Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used as an introduction to colour mixing. Pupils could follow the tips given in the clip for cleaning and drying their brushes each time they want to change colours. They could investigate how many different shades of green they could make mixing blue and yellow paints. It could be linked to a topic on monsters or applied to any painting task in other areas of the curriculum.
