This project isn't about colour theory it's all about discovery!
We are going to discover the colours/colors of your life...
Discovery always starts with questions;
As you notice any patterns or colour themes write them down or sketch a palette with some pencils.
I found a colour pattern in my life!
I noticed a lot of lime, deep red, hot oranges & cool greys. I started to notice how these colours were associated with different aspects of my life; the more serious activities introduced cooler tones and muted palettes whereas activities I associated with creativity and fun celebrated with bright vibrant themes.
We are going to use a fabulous app, Adobe Capture to create the digital colour palettes of your life.
You can download the app for IOS and Android HERE;
TIP: I recommend creating a Creative Cloud account for your family/classroom or each indvidual (13yrs+) so you can save your palettes in your own Creative Clouds libraries and use them in other creative apps in the Adobe Mobile Apps Family!
At home take photos of your clothes, furnishings, in other words all the items you explored when you first started making note of the colours in your life at the start of this activity.
Please see my image at the top of the page for a simple visual "how to".
You can also access further tutorials and suggested activities for the Adobe Capture App HERE
When you look at the colour themes and palettes you create with this project you will get some exciting personal insights and hopefully it will encourage you to undertake some more creative exploration with the digtech tools available to you.
Over 1000 Creative Cloud tutorials are also available via a free IOS app!
Until next time, have fun (and get creative! Put the "a" back into STEM)

Optional: Google Search downloadable resource ($1) to help with the Theme Park research!
creating your own theme park in Minecraft
Decide on the theme of your park, will it be an animal based attraction, rides based, or both?
If you decide to have an animal attraction, can you invent a new creature and design a suitable enclosure for it?
What will your theme park be called?
Sketch a basic layout for your park or create a flat design on a Lego Board.
Think of all the sections your park might have:
In Minecraft PE or PC/Mac or Xbox create a vanilla world in creative mode.
and start to build the park you planned!
Here are some examples from our projects;
A Wombat O'Saures world, which has a dinosaur sized creature very similar to a Wombat and a Diraffe O' Saures park, which has an oversized Giraffe called a Diraffe (we've been investigating dinosaurs recently so that inspired the development of these creatures!)
marketing Your Theme Park
Now it's time to create a digital brochure/poster to advertise your park!
Look at some brochures/posters from existing theme parks, what information do they include? Eg: Overview, ticket prices, main attractions, opening hours etc
