Wax Resist Color Wheels

 This project was done with my third grade students.  I had already talked to my students about different kinds of lines and after studying organic and geometric shapes, I decided to do a color wheel project in wax resist so that the students could apply what they know about lines and shapes while learning color theory.  I showed the students how to split their 9x12 inch paper into six sections and said that the division could either be random or more symmetrical.

Of course I prefer the more random one. :)  I wish I would have remembered to teach the students "asymmetrical".  Don't know what I was thinking!  I'll have to point that out.
