Grade 7 started off the year with a lesson on color theory, specifically mixing colors to create different hues, values, shades, and tones. First we reviewed Primary, Secondary, and Intermediate colors via making swatches and a color wheel. On the reverse side of the paper students drew shapes and rendered them using WARM, COOL, and COMPLIMENTARY COLOR schemes.
