Divali, light and colour

We have been learning about the Hindu and Sikh festival of Divali.  Because it is a festival of light we have been learning about light and colour also.

Here are photos of our art class today.  We had made diyas using clay last week and we painted them in red, yellow or orange today,  We also did colour blending using paints and lollipop sticks.  We used red, blue and yellow paints and mixed them two at a time to see what we could make.  We made purple, green and brown!

The children also made ‘stain glass’ candles and other symbols of light using a variety of coloured tissue paper and sugar paper.
