RE: magenta, turquoise, yellow: yum!

When my 8th grade kids did color wheels, I had them choose their
palettes--traditional red/yellow/blue or magenta/cyan/yellow. Then we
compared the results. It was very enlightening to them.

Do you use magenta, turquoise and yellow tempera paints instead of red,
yellow and blue?

I too won't enter into the color theory debate. As long as kids know
primary colors and WHY they are they primary colors then I think it is
great to
introduce something that makes their work more long as
understand the difference...

Hey...we could start a new wave...the new primary colors
are....<tada>!!! :-)
