Color theory robots

  1. 1. Color Theory Robots Perform Domain 6th Grade Standard Art/Meets twice a week for 50 minutes. Objectives: *Students will demonstrate an understanding of color theory. * Students will create sketches of robots and chose their best design to use as a repeated image with different color schemes using colored pencil. * Students will combine their repeated images in a grouping to create a completed composition that shows 4 different color schemes.
  2. 2. I introduced students to basic color theory with a Power Point presentation that included a game where students had to identify color schemes used in paintings and designs. After the presentation students completed these worksheets which served as a reference guide for their robot project.
  3. 3. Can you identify the color scheme in the image below? Is it a…. Primary Colors Red, yellow and blue - may not be created by mixing other colors. Secondary Colors They result from the mixing of two of the primary colors. Orange, green, and purple. Cool Colors Colors ranging between blue-violet and yellow-green on the color wheel. Warm Colors Colors ranging between yellow to red-violet on the color wheel. Monochromatic Colors Tints (color + white) and shades (color +black) of a single color. Complementary Colors Colors that are opposite of each other on the color wheel. Analogous Colors Analogous colors are three colors that are right next to each other on the color wheel. This is a slide from the Power Point game where students guessed the color scheme used in the featured design.
  4. 4. Students had studied Andy Warhol for a previous lesson. We talked about how he repeated images in his artwork and that Repetition is a Principle of Design. Students were instructed to make thumbnail sketches of robots after discussing robots used in movies like Wall-E and Star Wars. They were then to pick their best design and trace it in sharpie. This was their prototype and they traced it four times onto 5x5 squares.
  5. 5. Using their Color Theory Worksheet to help them decide on different pallets, students chose 4 color schemes for their robots. They then colored in each square with colored pencils. Once all the squares were finished they glued them onto black paper as seen here. This student used Warm, Cool, Primary and Neutral.
  6. 6. I like to have students use their understanding of the Elements of Art we are studying through projects that allow them some creative thinking within the skill. Here they demonstrated their knowledge of color theory while creating their own robots, narrowing down their best ideas and also using repetition.
  7. 7. This was a successful project for every learning level. Advanced students made unique or complex robots and used shading within their color scheme to get more variation. Most students exhibited proficient levels in this project. Emerging student artist were able to complete successful projects with simplified images and shading that still exhibited an understanding of color theory.
