Friday Art

Our most recent Friday Art project in Using Color in Your Art was to make the color wheel and then build a picture around it.

We had to draw the circles using a compass and then use a protractor to divide the circles into 6 pie sections. If you haven't studied the color wheel, you'll notice that the three primary colors: red, blue and yellow alternate sections. Between them are the three secondary colors, green, orange and purple. And if you look closely, you'll see that each secondary color is between the two primary colors which mix together to make it.

Daisy and Pepper chose to make color wheel snowmen.

Banana Boy made a flower.

Sunshine just experimented with a little purple.
