A fun art activity to experiment with the use of specific colour schemes.

Use this teaching resource when studying colour as one of the Elements of Visual Art. Students paint sections of a simple picture in complementary, harmonious (analogous) and monochromatic colours.

Complementary colours are any two colours that are found directly opposite each other on the colour wheel. Those colours that are located beside each other on the colour wheel are known as ‘harmonious’ or ‘analogous.’ The term ‘monochromatic’ refers to tints, shades and tones of a single colour. These variations are achieved through the addition of black, white or grey to the colour.
