What's the story behind Creative Colour?

People’s theories about colour could fill several encyclopedias! However, there are three ideas that are particularly useful for Little Ones – the idea of the colour wheel; of colour harmony; and of how colours are used. We explore these theories with three very different artists, Yayoi Kusama, Keith Haring and Helen Frankenthaler!

Tips for doing art with Little Ones

• Strip children down before you start, or have an outfit that is their ‘art outfit’.

• Allow them to experiment with materials. Don’t be too concerned about producing a single final piece.

• Bring out one material at a time – this makes it less overwhelming, and lengthens the process!

• You can often use surprisingly simple materials to work with, like shaving cream, toothbrushes, kitchen brushes, toy cars … all things that you may well have at home.

• Never leave Little Ones alone with art materials!
