The Nature of Emotions Color Wheel

2 Mar

I wanted to share this link that was passed on to me by fellow Art Docent, Jim Bargfrede. He used it as reference for a color lesson in room 7.

(click on pics for a closer look at the students work, and the written “emotion” they were painting.)

The kids were instructed to think of an event in their lives that stirred up emotions. Then asked to paint with watercolors their “emotions”. They were not to paint any sort of recognizable form or figure, but rather motions and movements with color that conveyed their emotion at the time of this event in their lives.

I loved this lesson, I love this special “emotion” color wheel. Thanks Jim for the lesson!
