Colours and Feelings


Groups divide into yellow, red and blue, but everyone gets a chance to be each colour.

They paint using one of the three colours.

This can be either an abstract painting or topic suggested by the colour. They then move on to the other colours.

Groups then divide into groups of three and they co-operate to produce a painting using all three colours without speaking or coming to blows.

The colours can be mixed together at this stage, rather than everyone working separately.
