Abstract Color Wheels
Barbara Short, Art Specialist
Adaptive art lessons, although designed for special education classes, are highly adaptable to varying student strengths in most elementary classrooms.
Students look at abstract painter Robert Rauschenberg and his art with letters. After gluing their initials and a black paper shape on a white piece of paper, they spread primary colors (using matt board pieces) to make secondary colors. Lastly, they add black until they feel their artwork is finished.
