jill here... looks like they were having fun ( but I had to coerce them to smile)! Arranging the colors in a wheel was a bit of a challenge. Forty eight little color squares can be confusing trying to sort them in hues, tints, tones and shades. Deductive arranging and relative color matching all played a role in their final placement. This exercise was devised to have a finished product and to help with color identification.
|Color therapy with grey backgrounds and glue sticks.|
|From left to right: blue, blue violet, violet and red violet.|
The central small square is the hue which is placed on the tint,
then the tone and finally the shade.
These are hard to discern when they are jumbled together.
|Another challenge: red orange, orange and yellow orange|
in the tones and shades are subtle differences.
|The tones and shades of yellow flow into a green appearance.|
No wander green and yellow are so compatible!

before we made it home to Ames.
Some people are so cleaver!
