on the color wheel and a creative heart

My favorite project in first grade art class was the color wheel. We each got a bigger-than-our-faces cardboard circle and the brightest colored paints in the classroom. All we needed, the teacher explained, was red plus yellow plus blue.

At first, I was confused and surprised. Thinking back to my treasured box of 92 Crayola crayons at home, there were surely more than three colors.

Those three, we learned, were merely building blocks. The potential was so very great.

It blew my first-grader mind and still inspires me today. Every shade, hue and pigment originates from just three simple building blocks . . .
