Why is colour important in art?

In this lesson, we will be thinking all about how colours can make us feel. We will begin to learn about the properties of colour and how to select colours for our art to express an emotion. At the end of the lesson we will be drawing a self-portrait in our sketch books using the colours that express how we are feeling today.
