Parker – Art: Watering Can Flowers Activity

Teacher: Parker (benparker@hps.holyoke.ma.us)

Assignment:

Hello Artists!  Here is a fun and simple activity you can do at home with whatever materials you have available:

This drawing would look lovely in lots of different media (crayons, markers, oil pastels) just try to choose colors that contrast each other when you do.

The reason this orange watering can stands out so well from the blue background is because those two colors are opposite each other on a basic color wheel. Another way to say that is they are “complementary” colors.

The other complementary color combinations that you have to choose from are red+green or purple+yellow. Something to consider when you for those crayons or markers or paints.

When you are finished please send me a photo of your work/ of your child’s process.  My email is: benparker@hps.holyoke.ma.us
