Color Scheme Generators

Teaching students to work with color is such an important part of a design education. I usually begin the school year with a project requiring the application of a color harmony so that students begin to understand how to choose colors that go well together. I've found a couple of fantastic resources for generating color schemes that I love to use with my students: - Absolutely amazing tool!! Needs the newest Flash player to run.

Color Scheme Designer 3 - A little different than, but still really cool.
