A Colorful Donut - The Color Wheel
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Have you ever seen a colorful donut? You might see one in art class, but you can't eat it. It is called a color wheel.
 
2     A color wheel shows all the colors of the rainbow. It looks like dots of color in a circle. A scientist named Isaac Newton noticed that when white sunlight goes through a prism, a rainbow of colors is created. Newton put the colors he saw in a circle. Then, artists later made this circle of colors into a color wheel. The color wheel helps artists create beautiful work.
 
3     Artists love colors. They study colors. The three most important colors are red, blue, and yellow. Red, blue, and yellow are called primary colors. These three colors make all other colors on the color wheel. If you wanted to paint an orange, you would mix yellow and red. If you wanted to paint purple grapes, you would mix red and blue. If you wanted to paint green grapes, you would mix yellow and blue.
