Magazine Circles of Color

magazine-circles-735x1024I 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.
