Art I: Color Wheel Project. 12 section mandala was created and each section was colored in tints and shades of the color wheel. It seems the same value was used in each section. I Specific criteria is not given. For middle school I would use 6 sections.
Color Wheel for Elementary Students I’ve found that most color wheels are either too complicated (lots of sections and subsections) or too simple (three overlapping balloons) for your average elementary student. My solution is to make my own, and also diagram primary, secondary, warm, cool and complementary colors. You can download a copy for free HERE (new link). Enjoy!
