Scavenger Hunt for Color | Drop-In Experience

Inspired by current exhibitions, complete a scavenger hunt to create your own rainbow using the colors around you.



Rainbows are made of seven colors. At CAMH, explore the exhibitions to look closely at the colors within works of art. At home, you can explore different places inside and outside to examine your surroundings for colors.

As you explore your surroundings, look for each of the following colors:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Indigo
  • Violet

Indigo – a deep reddish blue


As you explore inside, carefully look for each color.

Is the color bright?

Which colors are dull? 

How many shades of the same color can you find?

Can you find each color of the rainbow?

What is your favorite color?

Make a list of the names of the artworks that contain each color in the rainbow listed above.


As you explore outside, locate each color of the rainbow.

How are the colors outside different from the colors you noticed inside? 

What colors do you see that only exist outside?

Which colors are most vibrant? 

Can you find each color of the rainbow?

As you explore your surroundings, make a list of the things around you that contain each color in the rainbow listed above. 

Take a photo of your favorite color inside or outside where you explored and share your image with us at @camhouston!
