Knowing about color is a necessary task for artists. Teaching about the color wheel is one of the lessons that most art classes will study as the color wheel is an organizational tool for understanding color. This instructable will show a color wheel painted on a 48 inch round table. I am painting this table as a real life object lesson for my middle school students in my art classroom.
Step 1: Free stuff
So inspired by a pinterest photo of a table painted like a color wheel, I decided this week (school is starting next week- eek!) to start painting this table. Now because it was fairly large, I had to take it apart to fit it into my small SUV. I didn't/don't want to put it together until I get it at school as I'm going to have to transport again. So my painting happened in my messy garage. Sorry folks. This is reality.
Step 2: Materials
sandpaper and elbow grease or palm sander
paints: latex, acrylic, your choice
and eventually sealer of some kind to protect all of this work from scraping and the like!
