Color Wheel Connections Bookmaking Unit uses the artist’s color wheel as a metaphor to encourage children to contemplate their similarities and differences as human beings. In the color wheel, two hues may occupy territory on opposite sides of the wheel, but when they are side by side, they vibrate and dance, forming a complementary set. Likewise, two people can have differences, yet have universal hopes, dreams, aspirations and family connections that are very similar to one another.  These commonalities become the threads that hold us together as the human race. Students create thoughtful stories based on this theme, and also learn a wide variety of studio art-based illustration tactics including drawing and collage techniques, color theory and bookbinding.
