Color Wheels

I've been searching for a color wheel project that turned out to look like a work of art. Something that could, "hold its own" at the art show in May. I played around with this lesson and I'm happy to report that the results are just what I was looking for.

We started with our 3 circles on the paper (they had to be inside each other). Next, the kids divided the paper into 12 sections using any type of line they wanted. We walked through step-by-step painting each color (plus its tints and shades). The kids had to know where the colors went and if they had the correct color (there were about 10 color wheels hanging in the room). I was happy with what we ended up with!
