Colors and Mixing Colors Worksheet Set

Colors and Mixing Colors Worksheet Set Let's Students Explore Colors - Primary, Mixing, and Creating New Ones.

In a junior science book about light, I once read the most beautiful title of a chapter, "Light Means Life."  I immediately thought of our Lord Jesus, who is the light of the world, and how we could not live without Him in our lives.  Inspired to create something fun from our science reading lesson, I created this Colors and Mixing Colors Worksheet Set which allows children to develop the glorious colors that our Lord designed while illustrating how light is so easily filtered.

There are three different sheets in this art worksheet set.  Using a graphic organizer featuring little lenses, learners will create colors and mix them using pencil crayons or plain crayons. They must be sure to shade the lenses as directed using layers of color rather than just one heavy coloring.

The first worksheet allows learners to mix any two colors they desire per lens pair to create a new color in the overlapped area.  By simply coloring the circles one at a time and allowing smooth strokes to overlap, a new color will reveal itself.

The second worksheet gives learners the chance to create and mix new colors with just a bit of formality.  Gentle coloring and blending unveil colors within circles.  Warm (reds, oranges, yellows), Cool (blues, greens, purples), and Neutral colors (blacks, whites, grays, browns) are noted for new colors as well.

The last art worksheet uses three different lenses and asks learners to color the circles as instructed while creating additional colors from primary colors.  It is a fun, easy, and unique way to use Venn diagrams.
