Art School: Color Wheel Collage

Monday, August 19, 2013
Another project we did during our fine arts camp at church included a color wheel collage. Ahh, I adored this project. 

I wanted to work with color during the week and found this idea for the collage color wheel here, on a blog called The Handmade Home.   

We used color-aid paper, card stock, fabric and magazines. 

We glued with kids washable modge podge on the original template from the other blog and then I cut them out with an exacto knife and put them on white tagboard. 

I was fascinated by the kids thought process and how deliberate they were in creating these. Remember, they were rising 2nd and 3rd graders. 

I precut the magazine pieces along with the other papers as well. I gave them scissors so they could cut it a tad smaller. Some did, some didn't.

Those who didn't cut pieces smaller, were done quickly. Ahh! I was worried I would have nightmares of them saying, " I'm done." However, they received instruction well and were happy to add more pieces on to the white spaces.

It was a great way to study color and get them to ask questions about what colors are in other colors. 

I do love color. For the first day of class, we went around the room saying our favorite color. I struggled with it because I love so many colors. I am into color combinations these days- that's my new "favorite color." So, for today, mine would be a rose, chartreuse and gray. 

What's your favorite color? Or color combo?
