2. Join the lines to each other and to the edge of the paper to create a lot of closed shapes.

3.Paint a large colour wheel with the class. Discuss 'Roy-g-biv' Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo & Violet and the gradations of colour from red to orange, blue to purple etc.

4. Discussion - Point out that the Primary Colours - Red, Blue and Yellow. These are colours that cannot be made by mixing any colours together. Next point out the Secondary Colours ( Purple, Green and Orange). These are colours that are made by mixing 2 primary colours together. How do you think the name secondary came about?

5. Demonstrate -that you can achieve different hues by varying the amount of the two colours you mix together e.g. you can make a yellow-orange by taking red and adding small amounts of yellow to it. The same applies to all the other secondary colours.

6. Challenge the students to create a  piece of artwork that shows a lot of the gradations of colour between each primary and secondary colour e.g. start with yellow then gradually added small amounts of red to it so that the students see the steady change in colour.

7. Students fill the closed shapes with gradations of colour and wait for it to dry.

8. Once dry, outline the shapes in black then evaluate the process and results with the students.

9. Display artworks in a prominant place to show how 'arty' your students can be :)
