The Color Wheel
In this Art Quest, students will gain a better understanding of the color
wheel. In addition, they will explore prisms, hues, and values. This activity
is perfect for students who finished a project early. At the end of this
Art Quest, students will take a brief self-check quiz and visit the following
museum Web sites:
- High Museum of Art
- Guggenheim Museum
After completing this Art Quest, students should be able to:
- Define the following terms: color wheel, prism, hue, and
- Differentiate between tint and shade.
- Identify the hues in a work of art.
After this activity is complete, allow students to experiment with value
by creating the tints and shades of a color using paint.
