This product is jammed packed with handouts, visuals and examples that will make teaching Color Contrast easy for you and fun for your students! When I start my Color Unit I begin with Color Contrast before we even learn about the Color Wheel, color mixing or color schemes. Over the years, I have discovered that when a student's art work just "isn't working" it usually comes down to fixing the color contrast. If colors don't contrast well in an artwork, then no matter how neatly the artwork has been created, it wont be visually easy to understand. The image or design will be unclear This product teaches students 3 easy to remember 'tricks" to achieve color contrast that will be useful to them for EVERY art project they create!
This product includes:
- 6 page, illustrated step-by-step lesson plan
-Sketchbook activity to introduce and practice Color Contrast combinations with a Special Education Accommodation handout
-Step-by-step creative lettering handout with "Groovy 60's Style" Lettering font handout (Handy for students that are behind or were absent)
-3 Color Contrast visual examples to supplement the lesson
-related vocabulary handout
3 BONUS Color Contrast project ideas with student-friendly handouts. (Great to use as an alternative contrast lesson or as extra credit, time filler lessons for students that finish early!)
