High School Art Worksheets Beginner Acrylic Painting Color Theory Project



High School Art Worksheets


This high school art painting lesson is great for teaching color theory to high school, middle school, or even college students. Included is a PowerPoint to show your students explain the color wheel and how to use a split primary painting palette.

Within the presentation is a video demonstration showing exactly how to fill in the color theory worksheet using the proper painting technique. The link to the video is also included on the worksheet so students can scan the worksheet and see the video right from their own device even if they do not load it to Google Classroom.

Students learn to mix all of their secondary and tertiary colors from a warm and cool version of each primary color. They learn how color printers use cyan, magenta, and yellow to print all of their colors and how commercial paints are not true to the exact colors on the color wheel. They become familiar with commonly available commercial paint colors and learn how to determine whether they are cool or warm.

These handouts and worksheets are in both PowerPoint and PDF form so you can project and present them to your students and hand out copies for reference as they paint. There are lots of photos of finished examples pointing out common mistakes for reference.

Students mix each hue with its complement to get the tones and with white for the tints using a handout/worksheet explaining how to mix chromatic blacks and grays. These concepts are the key to getting students to create depth and dimension in their work by mixing color and learning how to get darker tones without using black paint.


Need an Easy to Follow Art Sub Plan?

The included worksheets work great as sub plans, and early finisher assignments, for students on home instruction or in ISS. They are easy to follow with the linked videos and are easy for substitute teachers or self-directed learning when the art teacher is unavailable.


All of my lessons can be shared with your students through Google Classroom or any digital platform and are formatted to work for distance learning or in the classroom. They are designed to save you time and help your students access the tutorials, presentations, videos, or worksheets as easily as possible. You can find more ready-to-go, easy-to-follow, time-saving art lessons in my RESOURCE SHOP.
