Bellwork is a great way to get your art students in a working, thoughtful mindset as they enter the classroom door. Not only does it allow the teacher extra prep time, it helps students review concepts, and encourages independent thinking.
This Power Point presentation focuses on "Color," with 20 five-minute opening-class exercises devoted to different aspects of color theory. Students will review and practice complementary colors, analogous colors, monochromatic (and other color families), as well as discover that colors have many cultural associations, and can express emotion and mood.
This Power Point presentation is geared toward Jr. High and High School art classes, and works best when students have a sketchbook or art notebook of their own. For the exercises in this Power Point, students may need access to colored pencils, crayons, colored pencils or oil pastels.
How should you use this presentation? When wanting to review Color theory, simply display a slide as students arrive in the room, and assign them to complete the day's warmup. Walk around and observe as students work, giving points, if daily assessments are needed.
