A set of warm/cool color wheel worksheets featuring the 12 primary, secondary, and tertiary colors.
Use this set of worksheets in your classroom to help your students learn about the visual art element of color by coloring the 12 parts of a color wheel.
The color theory worksheets cover:
Primary Colors: red, yellow, and blue
Primary colors are the colors that can’t be mixed or formed by any combination of other colors. All other colors are made from these three hues.
Secondary Colors: green, orange, and purple
These are the colors created by mixing two primary colors together.
Tertiary Colors: Yellow-orange, red-orange, red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green, and yellow-green
These are the colors created by mixing a primary and a secondary color.
Warm Colors are made with orange, red, yellow, and combinations of these. Warm colors remind us of sunlight and heat.
Cool Colors such as blue, green, and blue-purple remind us of water and sky.
Analogous Colors are any three colors that are side by side on a 12-part color wheel. Show the example yellow, yellow-orange, and orange.
Complementary Colors are any two colors which are directly opposite each other such as yellow and purple. These opposing colors create maximum contrast.
