Color Theory Project: construction of a personal color wheel.
This, Color Theory Project, is part of a series of projects related to the elements and principles of Art and Design.
The Focus is Color. Students examine the nature of subtractive and additive color. Discover the difference between CMYK & RGB color spectrums and their purposes. Students construct a color wheel chart in Adobe Illustrator and customize a color panel to include the following hues: primary, secondary, tertiary, tints, shades, complementary, monochromatic and analogous.
Students also explore the psychological aspects of color and the way we perceive color and it’s meaning, in preparation for a later project.
