Art 1 Wheels of Color

Now here is one of my favorite all time color projects in my first year classes. Based upon a drawing of a bike, the students then choose color harmonies and their approach from three choices to paint their final piece. So many breakthroughs came out of this project and more specifically students could remember their complimentary color harmonies. Look at a few of these. The lesson is in Volume I of the Art Work Book Series and more work will be posted in the MEMBERS ONLY sections of My Virtual Art Room.
