  2. COLOR WHEEL WORKSHEET: complete the definitions first, then make the color wheel
    Television and computer monitors create color using the primary colors of light. Each pixel on a monitor screen starts out as black. When the red, green and blue phosphors of a pixel are illuminated simultaneously, that pixel becomes white. This phenomenon is called additive color. Television screens and computer monitors are examples of systems that use additive color. Thousands of red, green and blue phosphor dots make up the images on video monitors. The phosphor dots emit light when activated electronically, and it is the combination of different intensities of red, green and blue phosphor dots that produces all the colors on a video monitor. Because the dots are so small and close together, we do not see them individually, but see the colors formed by the mixture of light.
    The color wheel generated from this additive system is different than the traditional color wheel. In the RGB, red-green-blue are the primary colors. In the traditional color wheel, the primary colors are red-blue-yellow. WE will use the RGB(HEX) color wheel to create our worksheet and our Photoshop project.
  3. define COLOR
  4. define hue, value tint, shade (this article goes in depth into these concepts)
  5. read this to learn about HEX color codes. read the entire page. It does explain this concept well. (here's another page about HEX color codes)
  6. label the # of degrees each color swatch rotates.
  7. do not complete the bottom PhotoShop portion of the worksheet. I will help you with that on Wednesday
