Campbellsville Middle School art students recently learned about the color wheel and then made their own.
In Jo Ann Harris’s classes, students learned that the color wheel tells which colors can be mixed together to make new colors.
When making a color wheel, primary colors red, blue and yellow are placed next to secondary colors orange, purple and green.
When finished, the wheel shows which colors complement each other.
As a project, Harris asked students to make their own creative color wheels.
Students could choose to draw anything they like, as long as it was drawn and colored following the design of the color wheel.
When their drawings were finished, students painted them with watercolors.
