Personal Color Wheels

These color wheels were made by the artists in grades 7 and 8. We began by creating a design that showed radial symmetry. This design needed to contain 12 equal parts to show all the colors of the color wheel. Students needed to include the three primary colors (red, yellow and blue), the three secondary colors (orange, green and violet), and the six intermediate or tertiary colors. This gave students the opportunity to learn about color theory and relationships while gaining experience with mixing. Once completed, the students outlined their designs with black sharpie.
