This high school art painting lesson is great for teaching acrylic painting and color theory to high school, middle school or even college students. It is great for distance learning or in the classroom. It includes a PowerPoint to show your students explaining the color wheel and how to use a split primary painting palette. Within the PowerPoint is a video demonstration showing exactly how to fill in the worksheet using proper technique. The link to the video is also included on the worksheet so students can scan the worksheet and see the video right from their own device even if you do not load it to Google Classroom.
Students learn to mix all of their secondary and tertiary colors from a warm and cool version of each primary color. They learn how color printers use cyan, magenta, and yellow to print all of its colors and how commercial paints are not pure pigment and true to the exact colors on the color wheel. They become familiar with common available commercial paint colors and how to determine whether they are cool or warm.
These handouts and worksheets are in both PowerPoint and PDF form so you can project and present to your students and handout the copies for reference as they paint. Also included are photos of finished examples pointing out common mistakes for reference. Students mix each hue with its complement to get the tones and with white for the tints. Also included is a handout/worksheet explaining how to mix chromatic blacks and grays. These concepts are the key to getting students to create depth and dimension in their work by mixing color and learning how to get darker tones without using black paint.
