1. On-line, look up “Color Wheel” to locate where each color is placed on the color wheel.

2. In your sketchbook, please draw a circle that almost touches the edges of your page. Draw a circle within that circle (like a lifesaver, seen on left, above):
Then divide the circle into 12 sections and label them (as the one on the right is above):
Red
Red-Orange
Orange
Yellow-Orange
Yellow
Yellow-Green
Green
Green-Blue
Blue
Blue-Violet
Violet
Violet-Red

3. Look through a variety of magazines to find several examples of those colors. Tear pieces of each of the colors, and glue them onto the page of your notebook to create a color wheel collage.
Reminders:
• Use pieces of colored paper.
• Make sure pieces within each labeled color are similar.
• Make sure that each piece of the lifesaver/pie is a different color.
• High quality craftsmanship counts.
• Label the colors NEATLY!
• Use the whole page.
