Red, Yellow and Blue are the primary colours.

Primary means first, so when you think of these three colours, think of them as the first colours.  Each one is a pure colour that cannot be created through the mixing of other colours. They are colours in their own right. The three primary colours can be seen below RED - YELLOW - BLUE.

These three primary colours are ones you mix together to make all other colours.

Primary colours are really bright and bold. This is because each one is pure, with no other colour mixed in with it.  This also means that they really stand out when you use them in your artwork.

Mixing primary colours together creates the secondary colours.

Secondary Colours:
These colours are made from mixing the 3 primary colours together.

Like Red and Yellow make Orange.
Yellow and Blue make Green

Blue and Red make a Violet.
Try making your own colour wheel to show the relationship of primary to secondary colours.

This is a great way to teach the colour theory to young children in a way they will never forget.
