Transcript of 2D Crazy Color Wheel

2D Art I Crazy Color Wheel Project
Color Quotes Activity
You'll have 2 minutes at each table
Begin with the quote at your table
WRITE what you think the quote means
Build upon what others have written around each quote
Use the same color markers as you move around the room
Once you've visited each table, you should return to your table to see what others have written around your original quote
Look at their comments and be ready to discuss your table's quote with the class
Crazy Color Wheel
You will make a "crazy" color wheel using the object you brought from home
You will:
draw an object from observation
be able to place colors in the order of the color wheel
be able to place colors with the complementary color
Crazy Color Wheel Directions
On a blank page in your sketchbook:
Draw equal 6 sections using a protractor and a ruler
Sketch your object, centered from a bird's-eye view
Really look at your object, draw what you see (not what you know or think you see)
Pay attention to shapes, details, and patterns
Color the background using the order of primary/secondary colors on the color wheel
Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple
You can start with any section
Use different shades of each color both in the background and the object
Add lines/shapes/pattern to create interest!
Now color your object using the same color order, while matching up each color in the background with its complementary color
Crazy Color Wheel Project
Once I approve your sketch/color plan, you may get your final paper
Repeat these steps for your final project:
Draw your 6 equal sections
Sketch your object in pencil
Pay close attention to detail!
Color the background using the color wheel order (ROYGBP)
Color your object using the same color order, matching complementary colors

Best-Selling Book: "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain"
Drawing upside down is an easy right-brain exercise that helps students recognize shapes and lines in a picture
The left side of the brain processes visual cues, interpreting them as familiar patterns and symbols
By turning the picture upside down, the image becomes unrecognizable, and the right side of the brain is forced to see the lines, shapes, and abstracted details, instead of the object as a whole
