Art Survey: Analogous Color Magazine Collage

Art Survey students are beginning their magazine collage project. This project focuses on color theory and relationships (different color schemes). Each student began with a pair of complementary colors; these are colors that are located across from each other on the color wheel. They then took each color from that pair, located it on the color wheel and picked 2 neighboring colors to create a set of analogous color schemes. 

All students began with a 12 x 12 inch piece of paper and measured a 2 inch border all the way around the edge. Within the main part of their page, they divided the square into 3 spaces, anyway they wanted to. They then picked which group of 3 colors to place inside the main portion of their paper and each individual color got it's own space. The second set of analogous colors will be used to color the border, but instead of individual spaces, these will all be mixed together.
