Hot and Cold

You can download and print the activity here

We are using colour to show the extremes of our good old weather – hot and cold!

 You will need:

We invite you to make two versions of the same scene, a cold one and a hot one. Choose anything you like as your image – a landscape, portrait, an item in your house or something from your imagination.


One version in cold colours –    blue, purple, green

One aversion in warm colours –  red, orange, yellow


These two images are the same scene just using different colours and the different effect is stricking.


You could display your pictures according to how you feel – the cold one if you are too hot and want to cool down, and the warm one when you are feeling chillly.

We would love to see what you come up with.
