Happy Fall 2022! It's a great time to explore color theory with young learners. Recently, college graduates from HBCUs celebrated and highlighted their alma maters. The first Black collegiate fraternity was founded at Howard University; it was also one of the first members of the Divine 9. The Divine 9 is a nick name that refers to a specific group of Black collegiate sororities and fraternities who are a part of the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
If you are a member of one of the Divine 9 organizations or like me, married to a member of one (Omega Psi Phi), then you know how important the colors are for each group. Each group wears their color duos with great pride. In this post we'll share some simple art resources/activities that you can use to create a color theory lesson which explores the Divine 9 color combos.
Inspired by Alma Thomas’ Untitled Abstract paintings, this lesson is a way great to help young artists develop fine motor skills. While this lesson was designed for young artists in primary grades, it can be tailored to use with older artists. Visit www.artforthecreativesoul.com to find more art lessons, resources and tips.
