Fourth Grade and Color Schemes

Fourth grade reviewed how to build a 12-color color wheel, then learned about three color schemes, or groups. 

Complementary Colors- found straight across from each other on the color wheel (yellow and violet)

Split-Complementary Colors- a color and the two colors on each side of its complement (yellow, blue-violet, and red-violet)

Analogous- 3, 4 or 5 colors next to each other on the color wheel (red, red-orange, orange, and yellow-orange)

We’ve looked at the non-objective work of Robert Delaunay and are sketching ideas for a final painting that will mimic his style, but add our own twist using color schemes.

Keep your eyes peeled!
