Develop an understanding of the relationship between color and saturation (the intensity of a color), along with gaining the ability to see a color and mix it. Mixing complementary colors help achieve less saturated colors with more neutral tones compared to just adding black and white.
As students are practicing mixing paint and creating muted colors (strong color identity of the parent hue but are noticeably duller than the hue,) achromatic greys (strong color identity of the parent hue but are noticeably duller than the hue,) and chromatic greys (extremely dulled down colors that still demonstrate a color identity of the parent hue), they can use the colors they mix to create a geometric design. Students can choose to focus on one set of complementary colors or explore multiple pairs.
