2nd gr.- Color Wheel Mixing

Artists use colors to create artworks.  Artists need to understand how colors work together to mix new colors. The color wheel helps us understand how colors work together. What are the primary colors?

What are those other colors that they made? They are the secondary colors. How do you create the secondary colors?  Here’s a little color math.

  • Primary + Primary = Secondary
  • Red         + Blue        = ___________
  • Red         + Yellow    = ___________
  • Blue        + Yellow    = ___________

Now that we know how to use color math to make secondary colors, where do they go on the color wheel? The second grade will mix colors and learn how to read the color wheel.
