Learn about color schemes such as, analogous, complementary, split-complementary, warm/cool and triads by creating abstract art from microscopic cells. Students use the reference of a microscopic cell labelled on the left and then re-create the shapes they see to create an abstract composition. Once drawn in pencil, they outline the composition in black sharpie and fill with their chosen color scheme, which they color in the boxes to the left. The final sheet asks students to find their own reference of a microscopic cell and create a composition from that.
