Magazine Circles of Color

Magazine CirclesI started this page with the idea of repeating circles. Students could fill in solid circles with colors that appeared in the cut out photos.
1. I used a spice jar lid to trace circles on my paper. I think it looks best when you can have at least 3 going across the page.

2. The same lid was used to trace some circles out of an art magazine I had. I wanted a lot of circles to color in so I cut and pasted only four photos. The remaining circles I colored in with pencil crayon, trying to use only colors I saw in the photos.
3. The background was filled in with a color that was not already used.
4. The edges of the circles were retraced with a black marker, and color names written in the corresponding circles.
