Color Wheel

~ Julia~


Another student of the Wednesday Open Studio has submitted her color wheel.


Rather than the standard color wheel, where you mix paints to achieve the right hues, we took another approach.


 The assignment was to make a color wheel using found objects and arranging them on their choice of wheel. The object was to help them learn to judge color, to work with color in a real world situation. The student could use any object(s) to populate his/her wheel. And any round object to put the wheel on. Mix and match was fine. Objects could have a theme or not, as the artist/student choose.


Julia finished her wheel, a mix of fabrics, pompoms, marbles and butterflies. She decided to locate the butterflies as compliments of color, adding a nice touch to the wheel.
