Second graders have recently been drawing "Color Wheel Flower Gardens". In this exercise, the dominant flower in the composition has petals that show a 6-part color wheel. The petals have the three traditional primary colors for painters (red, yellow, and blue) and the secondary colors (orange, green, and purple). The secondary colors appear between the primaries used to make them. Brown appears in the central circle of the color wheel flowers because various types of brown can be obtained by mixing the three primaries in different proportions. Black is in the very center of the color wheel flowers because it can be obtained by mixing the 3 primaries in proportions of equal strength. Students used their imaginations and mainly colored pencils to develop these artworks.
