We are working on identifying the arrangement of colors on a 12 part color wheel. We started with a circle that we folded into 12 equal spaces. We added a repeated line on the outer edge of each space which created a radial design. The center of each space was colored in the correct color wheel order using watercolor paint. The students mixed their intermediate colors. Finally the outer space along the edge was painted with the complement of the color it was touching. A complementary color is a color that is directly across the color wheel.
Check out my YouTube I've been teaching elementary Art for 18 years the last eight at Becky-David in the Francis Howell School District. Teaching Art is a great job and I absolutely love it! My job is made easier by all the wonderful Art teachers out there who share their ideas and "secrets" with me personally and through the internet. Thank you!
