I have been teaching elementary school art for the past seven years and I LOVE what I do! I am a teacher who creates more messes than I can clean, thinks that glitter makes everything look better, and believes that art can bring people of all cultures together.
I have a confession to make...I don't always teacher color wheels every year. There I said it. Now, I do, however, teach color theory in lots of other lessons, but the actual painting inside the spaces in a particular order just, I don't know, BORES ME! But I decided to give it a go with my 4th graders this year. They loved it. And they turned out great! However, I just couldn't leave the color wheels as they are in their blah state. We turned our color wheels into Ferris Wheels! Who doesn't LOVE a Ferris Wheel? The color, the lights, the shape, the excitement (just not the price, lol). Here are a few of our fabulous Ferris Wheels:
