Re: Ken Schwab's Spectrum Paintings

Ken Schwab's Spectrum Paintings can be seen at his school website at Leigh
High School in San Jose, CA. Type in Ken Schwab, Leigh High School at Dogpile
for the address.
    I'm going to be showing your students' Spectrum (Color Wheel) Paintings
to my classes on Tuesday via an Internet connection to our wall mounted
TV/VCR called an Averkey My students have already made four thumbnail designs
using line: (Straight lines, Bent Lines, Wavy Lines and Interrupted Lines). I
told them at least twelve of the lines had to be "in a row" or concurrent in
their design. That way they can get their twelve spectrum colors in order
starting with yellow, somewhere in the painting.
    I know that the pics will wow them, because everyone who sees them goes
"Wow". As you know, last December I had asked for a little help in designing
a Color Wheel painting for Beginning level Art H.S. students that was
different than the same ol' circular Color Wheel format. Thanks to this Web
site and you great Art Teachers out there, Voilá, I have a great lesson. It
is a great source of inspiration.
