This unit introduces students to color theory by way of two different mediums; acrylic and watercolor. This unit follows the design process once again by having the students introduced to acrylic paints and watercolor paints as well as different techniques by a hands-on demonstration where the students follow step-by-step until they have the hang of things.
Students will produce three projects by the end of this unit. Two small pieces incorporating color mixing in both mediums and then a final piece where students get to choose which project they would like to create with which preferred medium. There are four types of projects to choose from; 2 watercolor and 2 acrylics.
