Grade 5

PERSONAL AND SOCIAL SKILLS

Module 1

VISUAL ARTS: COLOUR

Activity 1: (individual) [LO 3.7]

A number of transparent objects are arranged to form a still life. Look carefully at the still life and note that some objects are standing in front of others. Because the objects are transparent, the object behind can also be seen. (Draw all objects in pencil.)

We are now going to paint these objects. Use the three primary colours – red, yellow and blue. Try to make the colour of every object different from the one next to it. Because we have no white or black, the object cannot be painted darker or lighter. Where objects overlap the colours of both objects must be mixed and painted.

When you have finished, answer the following questions :

  • Which colours could you use?
  • Did you paint objects placed next to each other in different colours?
  • What happened when you mixed two colours?
  • How many new colours did you get? Name them.
  • Write down how you got these colours.

Activity 2: (group work/individual)

Each learner has received a part of a photo or picture with a number written on the back.

Draw what you see on your piece of picture or photo on the piece of paper that you have received. You will have to enlarge it (make it bigger) to make it fit on the paper. When you have finished, copy the number on the back of the small picture on the back of your drawing.

You will now be divided into groups of four. Look at your numbers and then join your drawings together in the right order. The educator will tell you how to do this. The drawings should all link together; otherwise they must be changed and adapted.

Next, the four of you must paint your drawing, using secondary colours as well as black and white to show dark and light (shades and tints).

When your group has finished, you will be able to join your group’s painted picture to some other groups – look at the numbers for guidance. You will now have an enlarged version of the original picture or photo to hang on the wall.
