Children have the opportunities to paint using a different brushes as well as other tools and using different types of paint such as acrylic, watercolours, block paint and impasto.

In EYFS the children explore colour mixing and experiment with applying paint in different ways.  Year 1 develop an understanding of what are primary and secondary colours.  In Year 2 the children are introduced to tints (adding white) and tones (adding black) when colour mixing.
