Abstract

An artfully designed, 3-D computer-generated video story was created to demonstrate the mixing of primary colors to obtain secondary colors. Two research questions were explored in this research: Do artfully designed 3-D computer-generated video stories enhance learning or are such entertaining works a distraction from learning? And, do children attend to the content of artfully designed video or are they merely entertained? Results of this study showed that visualization technology and the use of 3-D graphics stories can be employed in the field of art education to increases a child's understanding and attention to color theory. These findings contribute to theory regarding children's art education and provide evidence that 3-D computer-animated video stories can be valuable teaching tools for young children.
