I've just finished teaching my grade 7 art class (12 year olds) the basic of colour theory. Below are a few examples of their primary colour collages. I was really thrilled with some of their creative results.
My work place has given me permission to publish photos of my students work as long as I don't publish their names or photos of the actual students.
I believe that colour is one of the fundamental elements of art and design. I always do a series of basic sheets with all my year 7,8 and 9 students, and then give them a more detailed project.
For the year 7's it is often the first time they have done much colour theory. It is more of a refresher for the year 8 and 9's. The practical task they do will change every year so they don't do the same project more than once.
My year 7's main task is a primary colour collage (photos coming)
My year 8's made a secondary colour collage (no photos sorry).
My year 9's complete a colour wheel as creatively as possible. (photos coming)
I have pasted images below of a few of the handouts I use with my students. Feel free to use these with your own classes.
I use the sheets below in my year 8 class.
The sheet below is one I often do with the year 8's as a bit of a fun fill in activity.
