Collaborative Collage Color Wheel

I haven’t been so good about sharing art projects this year.  I grabbed my p+s yesterday so that I could share this little collaborative free time project.  As any Art teacher knows students work at very different speeds.  There always ends up being extra time for some students while others struggle to finish.  I like to have a structured group project going on at all times for students to participate in whenever they have down time.  Right now they are working on a large scale magazine collage color wheel.  A few weeks back I ask students who finished early to start going through magazines and finding primary, secondary and tertiary colors.  After tearing out the colors they separated them onto different paper plates.   A few other students designed a color wheel on cardboard and then further separated the colors into the pure hue, tints and shades.  Now we are collaging all the pieces together.  I’ll post a photo of the finished project soon!

Ashley - terrific! As a mother I would love to hear a little but more about the break down of this project, like how the colors were separated further. I think this would be excellent for my little ones to do if I prepared all of the materials. Thank you for sharing!

Melissa - Ashley- The students further separated each of the 12 primary, secondary and tertiary colors into the primary hue, tint (lighter value of the color) and shade (darker value). The created a design that included all 12 colors plus their tints and shades. HTH!

Jazmin - Currently working with suspended middle school children and looking for a school wide project. There are currently 80 students. I think this is an amazing idea that they would benefit from working as a team for a beautiful outcome. We reside in NYC, any ideas of what the kids can do?
