This is a hand-drawn color wheel worksheet that can be used for grades 4-8 (4th may need extra guidance).
The worksheet features a color wheel with slots for primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. I had my students use only the primary colors (colored pencil) to blend and create the secondary and tertiary colors.
It also features spots for the following definitions as related to color:
There are boxes on the right to fill in what the primary and secondary colors are, the question "how do you make a secondary color?" and the statement "A __________ color is made by mixing a primary and a secondary color."
ANSWER KEY AS FOLLOWS
monochromatic - mono =one, chromatic = color; therefore, "one color" - an artwork that uses tints and shades of one color.
achromatic - a = without, chromatic = color; therefore, "Without color" - an artwork that uses no color, or is black and white.
complementary color - colors across from each other on the color wheel.
analagous color - colors (two, three, four) beside each other on the color wheel (such as red, red orange, orange, and yellow orange)
hue - another word for color
tint - a color mixed with white
shade - a color mixed with black
warm colors - any shade/tint of red, yellow, orange
cool colors - any shade/tint of blue, green, violet
Why are they called 'primary?'
Because primary means 'first' and they are the colors used to make all other colors; they cannot be made.
How do you make a secondary color?
By mixing two primaries.
A ____________ color is made by mixing a primary and a secondary. TERTIARY
