7th Grade - Color Wheel

Today in class we finished our group presentations using the Elements of Design. We then moved into our first small painting project.

Students were given the three primary colors and then were asked to discover the secondary colors by mixing analogous primaries. They created color wheels

Students were then asked to discover the six tertiary colors by mixing a primary and its analogous secondary color. There were lots of fun discoveries. In our 7th and 8th period Michael was able to discover black by mixing the three primaries.

Next up: The principles of design.
