Color Theory from the Art of Education University

Art teachers at the elementary and middle-school levels will want to check out the articles, videos, and other resources on color theory available from The Art of Education University (featured in the 11-20-2020 Scout Report), a fully online graduate university offering accredited degrees for art teachers. The resources were created by experienced art teachers to facilitate art education through lesson plans, activity ideas, and games for the classroom. For instance, the article "You Don't Have to Teach the Color Wheel Anymore," describes this outdated concept for exposing students to color theory and offers four engaging and nuanced alternatives. Another article, "7 Ways to Use Paint Chips in the Art Room," offers activity ideas using those free color palettes from the paint section of any hardware store. Many lesson plans include downloadable content for use in the classroom, although readers should note that they must create a free account to access these downloads. Art teachers can also check out other resources on the site for topics such as classroom management, technology, and teaching philosophies.
