Fractured Colouring In Art Work

Here is a simple art idea, focusing on shape and colour choice.

Print off some simple drawings for students to choose from. I find that animal outlines work the best but you could also use pictures of transport, fruit, people, maps of countries (map of Australia turns out well), or other simple outlines.

Have students use a ruler to draw lines across the picture. The more lines, the smaller the sections will be. 15-20 lines are usually good for an A4 sized picture.

Discuss colour choice with students. What colour combinations complement each other? Which colours contrast? Discuss warm and cool colours. For my example I have chosen warm colours for inside the picture and cool colours for around it.

After students have coloured each section you can mount it on black or white card to frame it.
