Color Wheel Motifs

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Explore color, motifs and radial symmetry with this color wheel lesson. My students had a blast coming up with ideas. We started by creating thumbnail ideas for our motifs and experimenting with how those ideas worked as a radial design. Next we drew out one of our ideas full size. Cut it out and traced it at a 30 degree angle around the center of our paper. Finally we painted all the colors on the color wheel using only primary colors.

This one is all wrapped up in a pretty little PowerPoint on my TpT store at:
