Think of an injustice or cause Your own life, at school, in the community, you have heard of or read about
Make art! Then create a piece of art that will persuade others that something must be done to stop this injustice. How can you use iconography and symbols of the 20 th century to persuade people about something you believe? What message can you convey? Do you need words?
Propaganda uses color schemes Color schemes are groups of certain colors that look good when grouped together. When you are trying to capture someone’s attention it is a good idea to use a color scheme.
Primary Colors PRIMARY means “first”. These colors are the ones that must come first before any other colors from the color wheel can be created. Primary colors cannot be mixed to be created by any other colors.
Secondary Colors A primary color + a primary color = a Secondary color
Tertiary (or intermedi ate) Colors A primary Color + and Secondary Color = a Tertiary (or intermediate) Color
Neutrals Colors that are not found on the color wheel such as white, black, gray, brown
Monochromatic Mono = one, single,... as in monorail Chroma = color thus monochromatic = One color. One color plus tints and shades.
Analogous Colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. Colors with a family resemblance. Analogous colors will have some of the same primary color; ex. yellow, yellow- orange, and orange, or blue, blue-green, and green etc. Analogous will always mix well.
Complementary Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel; ex. red and green, violet and yellow, yellow-green and red-violet etc. If mixed together in near equal amounts, complements make a neutral color. If a little of a hue’s complement is mixed in with it, the result will be a dulling or neutralizing of that hues intensity.
Triadic: 3 colors that are equally spaced. The most famous of these is the primary triad... red, yellow, and blue. Triadic harmonies are most effective if only one color is allowed to dominate.
