Painting: Colour Explorations

How can we use colour to represent the world around us?

Program Description

Students will explore the effects of natural light and other elements on the waterfront landscape’s colours, shapes and textures. Back in the studio, students will rotate through play-based activity centres, experimenting with colours, lines, shape, texture and space. The students will then combine their colour experiments to create a collaborative landscape mural. 

Program Objectives

By the end of the Painting: Colour Explorations program, students will:

  • Explore how we perceive colour, shape and texture throughout Harbourfront Centre’s landscape.
  • Experiment with colour, texture and shape through the medium of paint.
  • Use appropriate vocabulary as related to the elements of design.
