Color Wheels 101

The 3s,Pre-K and Kindergarten all learned about the color wheel this week.
As the age progressed the color was in more detail. 
The artist always use colors seeing them change from blue and yellow to green. 
This exercise offered them a tool to return to time after time to know how to mix a color. 
We started out with the primary colors:red,yellow and blue. Then mixed secondary
colors: green ,orange and purple. For the older students they learned about tertiary (third level)
colors. Of course they all were able to paint with their new found knowledge. Some painted small circles of
color keeping them separate. Some went back to painting layers of color to make the
brown that comes from mixing them all together.
