“Let’s Play Color Composition”: A Learning Support Game for Color Based on Fairy Tales
Abstract: Art education is important in teaching people how to not only create art but also to use it in various expressive activities in daily life. However, in recent years, children’s art classes are becoming less common. Therefore, we sought to support art education by teaching children about color, which is the foundation of visual art. We developed a coloring game based on fairy tales to serve as a learning support system. In this system, children can experience the three primary colors. By doing so, it is possible to efficiently cultivate their sense of color, and it is expected to be useful in various expressive activities. Furthermore, we conducted an experiment to confirm the usefulness of this system at the Noda City Mizuki Elementary School. From this experiment, the usefulness of the system was confirmed. In this paper, we outline the developed system and the experiment conducted to evaluate it.
