Creative Color Wheels

Art I students are learning about the color wheel -- a helpful graphic organizer that demonstrates how colors are made and their relationships. For instance, analogous colors (those that are adjacent on the color wheel) create peaceful harmonious color schemes. Complimentary colors (opposite on the color wheel) provide optimal color contrast.

The assignment was to reinterpret the traditional color wheel using shapes or objects of the students' choosing. They colored them with Prismacolor colored pencils.
