I was wondering if anyone had some advice on how far I should go with teaching color thery to 8th grade students. In high school I have them do tints, shades, tones and monochromatic,, complimentary, analougous, etc. I don't really think this is appropriate for the younger students. What do you all think?



I intro complementary, primary, secondary and intermediate to 7th and review and add analgous and monochromatic in 8th. 8th then does a color scheme painting with modrian and a monochromatic self portrait. its hard for some and others are bored i think so maybe you are right to question it. but i feel like these are basic words and concepts and they have heard most of them since elementary and still dont know and i know for sure they cover them in high school art. but a lot of my students dont get to take high school art so i figure cover as much as i can to give those people a chance to be ahead of the game in high school and others atleast have been introduced to it. c
