This is a powerpoint presentation that I use for my studio art students. They are mixed in with my beginning class, so I have to find out ways to get them the information they need that they can view from their school ipads while I am teaching a lesson to the intro to art students. And yes, I know I don't do powerpoint very well bcs I just learned how a few days ago-this is for my students only-so no negative comments please.

  8. 8. Earthy Neutral colors (not included on the color wheel) such as browns, beiges, grays, ochres and the like that remind us of certain earthy hues found in soil or rock. Earth colors are made by mixing complementary colors.
  9. 9. Earthy Examples:
  10. 10. Now it’s your turn. What color effect is this?
  11. 11. Answer: Did you guess Harmonious? Remember, harmonious colors are colors that work well together. In this case, it is bright colors. You can see complementary colors such as blue & orange, and yellow & a form of violet and green with a hint of red. Although not all of these colors are right next to other, they are in the vicinity of each other and still help bring out the vibrant color. Other harmonious can be all primary colors (Red, Yellow, Blue), all Secondary colors (Violet, Green and Orange)
  12. 12. And this one?
  13. 13. Answer: Earthy colors are used. The flower has tones of brown and orange which give it a rustic look.
  14. 14. What about this one?
  15. 15. Answer: This one is Realistic. It uses colors that are true to the flower itself. You might have been fooled by the background color.
  16. 16. I know you’ll get this one!
  17. 17. Answer: Of course, it is complementary! Blue and Orange are used to bring each others best qualities out. Complementary colors are colors that are directly across from one another on the color wheel. Every color on there, has a complement. Other main complementary colors are violet & yellow, red & green. What do you think the complementary of blue-green would be?
  18. 18. I know you know this one!
  19. 19. Answer: Look at the light colors-there is just a hint of color and almost has a watercolor quality to it. So, this one is subdued / minimal
  20. 20. I will be shocked if you don’t get this one!
  21. 21. Answer: This one uses a Monochrome scheme of black and white. Monochrome can also be different shades of 1 color. This flower could have easily been shades of violet, or reds, etc.
  22. 22. Now, you get to practice what you learned! On white 8 x 11 white paper: • Draw 6- 3” x 3” boxes and outline them in black. • You will put a subject matter in each box and a simplified background. It can be different in every box (ie. an apple, a flower, a tree, a butterfly, etc) or it can be the same in all 6 boxes. • Use the whole space of your box. • Draw an example for all 6 of the color effects using colored pencil-Monochrome, Harmonious, Complementary, Subdued / Minimal, Realistic, Earthy • outline the contours in thin black line. • draw an example for all 6 of the color effects using colored pencil
