Activity 3: Color Mixing


  • Ever since kindergarten we are taught that red paint and blue paint swirled together makes purple but it’s never really explained why this color transformation occurs. So how do colors mix? It may appear that colors meld together magically to form a new hue but in reality the observed result is due to mixing in either subtractive or additive processes.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the concepts of Additive and Subtractive Mixing.

  • Be able to discern the resultant color when various pure and impure color lights or pigments are mixed.
