Fourth graders learned that artists sometimes use color theory to make their artwork more visually effective. After reviewing the color wheel (primary, secondary, tertiary, warm and cool colors), students learned to identify analogous, complementary and split-complementary color schemes. Students planned a non-objective design and divided into four sections, one for each color scheme learned, plus a “freebie” section. Students mixed primary and secondary color paint to add color to their work.
