Spring 2: Painting

This half-term we have been focusing on our painting skills! We have learnt how to mix secondary colours, made different tints, tone and shades, experimented with warm and cool colours and then recreated a section from our focused artist - Kandinsky and his piece 'Concentric Circles'. Please see below our knowledge organiser to support with learning, containing skills, key knowledge and key vocabulary.
