Wheels of color

Well Art 1 has to start somewhere when we talk about color theory, and what better place than the color wheel.  We first go through the color wheel and how to mix all of the colors in our sketchbooks.  Then I give them 12 x 12 paper and we divide it into 12 even triangles that they then paint with the 12 colors of the color wheel.

I will admit that I cheated this year and cut out triangles that the students just had to trace.  It saved a lot of time over having them figure out how to divide up the circle.

After that I had them cut it up into any design they wanted.  I even let them stack them this year on top of each other in a line instead of a circle.  Here are a few of my favorites.
