Kusama Color Theory Orbs
Watercolor 3D Color Wheel Experiment
Before creating these paintings, students studied Color Theory. They learned many concepts in color theory including: pigment primary colors, spectral primary colors, secondary colors, tertiary colors, complementary, analogous, tints, shades, and more!
The final outcome for this project was originally a 3D Color Wheel, where the completed circles fit into each other. However, students were so afraid to make a mistake and fail, that many were hesitant to even begin the project. I decided to scrap the lesson and change direction (Thanks to Mr. Shahbaz). After working on these paintings for about 6 hours, I asked students to re-do the project entirely and get as much completed as possible in just 1 hour. The images above are their comparison of their 6-hour work and their 1-hour work. Students also wrote Artist Statements evaluating how their skills, attitudes, and time management changed. I hope they were able to take away from this lesson that failure will happen, and it's important to learn how to learn from it and move forward. YAY FAILURE!
