Color Wheel Scavenger Hunt

Who doesn’t like a scavenger hunt?

This project was suggested by artist and friend of the HV Arts Council, Susan Mitrano.  Susan is an art teacher at Timberlane Middle School and gave this fun project to her students as one of their remote learning assignments.

Mission:  Find ALL of the colors in the color wheel.  

A color wheel is a circle that illustrates the relationships between primary colors, secondary colors, and tertiary colors. (Fig 1)

Step 1. Look around your house and yard for small objects (or part of an object) that are a close match to each of the colors on the wheel. 

Step 2. Arrange the objects in a circle in the order they appear on the color wheel. 

We have a few important ground rules: 

  • Please don’t use liquids or messy or personal items without asking permission first.
  • Please don’t cut ANYTHING apart without asking permission first.
  • Try not to use paints or crayons – get creative!

Get some ideas from this fun color wheel created by one of Ms. Mitrano’s talented students. (Fig 2)

Students were required to take a photo of their completed wheel to submit electronically. You won’t get a grade, but if you’d like to share your color wheel, please post it on social media with the tag #HVArtsDailyDose.
