Find Me: Color Schemes

Your assignment is to find images which demonstrate each of the following color schemes.

  • Primary
  • Secondary
  • Analogous
  • Complimentary
  • Cool
  • Warm
  • High Key
  • Low Key
  • Monochromatic
  • Neutral

For the images I only want graphic, advertising, popular, or contemporary art.  I do not want any images that could be associated with fine art, your textbook, or anyone who died before 1990.  I want you to see that the art terms we are learning about are still vital and being used today.  Good sources include magazines, comic books and graphic novels, stills from games and movies, and the vast internet.  Photographs you take of objects around your house would also work.

Flash Cared Version:  On a standard index card you are to place a Xerox or print-out of your image with an appropriate label and a brief definition.  Make sure to put your name on the back of each index card in case they become separated in some way.

Or Digital Version:  In a Prezi, Word document, PowerPoint, etc. pair each image with the appropriate label and definition.  Send your product to me via Dropbox or link.

For help in understanding what these color schemes are, go here.

Due by Monday, November 17th,  at the beginning of class, or by 11 p.m. for digital submissons.  This is a formative grade.
