7 Color Theory

Lets get messy with paint… first we will figure out what happens when we mix certain colors together…

Define:  Color, Hue, Adjacent Colors, Complimentary Colors, and Monochromatic

As a class we decided the following words’ meanings:

Color- a basic element of art; shows the reflection of light

Hue- different shades of one color

Adjacent Colors- are next to each other on the color wheel; yellow-green-blue-purple-red- orange- yellow…

Complimentary Colors- colors on the opposite side of the color wheel; purple & yellow, red & green, blue & orange

Monochromatic- one color and its shades
