During quarter three, the sixth grade students investigated the element of art: color. Students learned about color theory, color mixing and the many connections between science and art: light spectrum. Students examined the history behind color theory and its importance in the art world. Students learned about the various color schemes including: primary, secondary, tertiary, warm, cool and complementary. Using color mixing techniques with paint, students created a personalized color wheel for their final product. This project allows students to see how colors react with each other and make it easier for them to make educated color choices in the compositions that come later in their art career.
