Teach students how to apply and mix colors using either paint or colored pencils. This printable 8.5 x 11 .pdf allows students to recreate the color wheel using only primary colors and also teaches them how to create tints, tones, and shades from one color (Back).
This is a great compliment activity to my Color Theory PowerPoint Presentation.
