Lesson 1. Colour work

Materials needed:
  • Old magazines
  • Sweet papers
  • Assorted fabric
  1. Using complementary colours (those opposite each other on the colour wheel eg red & green, or purple & yellow, or orange & blue).
  2. Collect a variety of papers in these colours from old magazines, sweet papers, fabric etc.
  3. Use these to make a collage – could be a portrait, landscape or just a pattern.
  4. I’ve enjoyed making some examples to illustrate.
