Color Theory Crash Course by *pronouncedyou on deviantART

Color Wheel Math - very good math integration video. When I teach color theory I assign the primary colors the number 1, secondary (2nd-ary) the number 2. Then we see 1 + 1= 2 (primary + primary = secondary). This is also helpful to show that mixing two secondaries doesn't equal a primary. 2+2 does not = 1 Then show a primary color (1) plus a secondary color (2) equals a tertiary color (3).

Nice color scheme ideas

Ooh La Love!

Violet is a spectral color (approximately 380–420 nm), of a shorter wavelength than blue, while purple is a combination of red and blue or violet light.[10] The purples are colors that are not spectral colors – purples are extra-spectral colors. In fact, purple was not present on Newton's color wheel (which went directly from violet to red), though it is on modern ones, between red and violet. There is no such thing as the "wavelength of purple light"; it only exists as a combination.[2]

Yellow (/ˈjɛloʊ/) is the color evoked by light that stimulates both the L and M (long and medium wavelength) cone cells of the retina about equally, with no significant stimulation of the S (short-wavelength) cone cells.[2] Light with a wavelength of 570–590 nm is yellow, as is light with a suitable mixture of red and green. Yellow's traditional RYB complementary color is purple, violet, or indigo, while its colorimetrically defined complementary color in both RGB and CMYK color spaces is blue.

Red is any of a number of similar colors evoked by light consisting predominantly of the longest wavelengths discernible by the human eye, in the wavelength range of roughly 630–740 nm.[2]

Blue is a colour, the perception of which is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of roughly 450–490 nm. It is considered one of the additive primary colours. On the HSV Colour Wheel, the complement of blue is yellow; that is, a colour corresponding to an equal mixture of red and green light. On a colour wheel based on traditional colour theory (RYB) where blue was considered a primary colour, its complementary colour is considered to be orange (based on the Mu

I know how hard it is to think of questions to ask on the spot when I want to practice colors with my students. It's so nice to have a list of que...




Great for a color unit!
