My third graders are going to explore the primary & secondary colors, complementary colors, patterns, rotational symmetry, while learning the geometry of a circle in these color wheel paintings. Then they will be compared to op art as students rotate and digitally fall into them using Do Ink drawing and animation app on the iPad.
Today-ish is Dot Day (a day to celebrate making your mark) and also the day I wanted kindergarteners to explore the color wheel. So, we did both in a new way. I usually begin kindergarten art classes with a lesson on the primary colors, secondary colors, and how they fit on a color wheel. I give them a blank color wheel sheet and we use the three primary color crayons to fill in primaries and mix to make secondaries. This color theory lesson has become much more rewarding for my students now that we have a 1:1 iPad art room. After filling in our modified quiver dot day wheel we use the Quiver app to make our wheels come to life with augmented reality (AR). Download my color wheel sheet here. See my previous post for more images.
