What do we know about circles? • One curved line that connects • Lids are circles • Pizzas, pies, and cakes are circles • Symbolic- sign for eternity or unity like a wedding ring • Used to show percentages in a pie chart
What do we know about circles? • Used to show percentages in a pie chart • Used to keep time like on a clock, every 30 degrees represents 5 minutes. • Used to teach angles • Used to show relationships as a color wheel
How many degrees in a circle? • there are 360 degrees in a circle, that there are 90 degrees in a right angle • scientists, engineers, and mathematicians it is usual to measure angles in radians.
The Color Wheel • The color wheel is an organization of color hues around a circle, showing the relationships between the Primary colors, Secondary colors, Tertiary/ Intermediate colors, complementary colors, and color schemes. • It is the Brewster color system based on the 3 Primary colors
The Primary Colors • The Primary colors are: • Red • Yellow • Blue • They are the only set of colors that are unable to be created by a combination of other colors. • However, they can be combined to make a useful range of color. • Secondary colors • Tertiary/ Intermediate colors
The Secondary Colors • The Secondary colors are: • Green • Orange • Violet • They are created by mixing equal amounts of 2 Primary colors
The Tertiary/ Intermediate Colors • The Tertiary/ Intermediate colors are: • Red/ Orange • Yellow/ Orange • Yellow/ Green • Blue/ Green • Blue/ Violet • Red/ Violet • They are created by mixing equal amounts of 1 Primary color and 1 Secondary color.
Neutrals or “Uncolors” • Neutrals are colors not found on the color wheel. • They do not effect color schemes. • Some Neutrals are: • Brown • White • Black • Beige • Taupe • Off- White • They are important to all color schemes. • Warm neutrals are easier to work with than cool neutrals.
Warm & Cool Colors • Colors may be classified as warm or cool.
