Despite this everyday medium being widely used in schools and at home, most children do not know how to used it effectively to gain full potential.
Our selections are compiled to educate children that crayons do not always need to be used like a pen.
Take a look at how versatile this medium can be, as well as all the creative effects it can produced. Unless some of these techniques are applied, painting may still be the preferred method for our projects.

red - yellow - blue

mixing these colours in equal parts will produce neutral colour, usually a murky grey

2 primary colours = 1 secondary colour

yellow + blue = green
red + blue = purple
red + yellow = orange

This leaves each primary colour with a complementary colour (mixed from the other two primaries). Blue/orange, red/green, and yellow/purple are complementary to each other.

1 primary + 1 secondary colour or 2 secondary colours = tertiary colour

A tertiary colour or quaternary colour (called intermediate colours) is a colour made by mixing either one primary colour with one secondary colour, or two secondary colours, in a given colour space.
When you align the 3 primary colours with the secondary and 'tertiary' colours around the colour wheel chart, the complementary colours always sit directly opposite each other.
Each pair complement (= 'complete') each other to produce a neutral colour. Mix two complementary colours, and you'll get the old murky grey.
