Printable Colour Wheel - Primary and Secondary Colours
Last summer I created this basic colour wheel for my art camp. I wanted my younger students to try their hand at mixing colours, rather than using a colour straight from the tube. To emphasise mixing primary colours to create secondary ones, I found a simple colour wheel and instead of labelling a secondary colour 'green' I wrote 'blue+yellow'.
I also used this colour wheel as an introduction to complimentary colours and Pointillism, where artists mix colours with their eyes.
Feel free to use this colour wheel with your own students, but please link back if you share it.
