To Draw a Color Wheel

Draw a large circle, a plate could be used as a template. Find the center of the circle and draw a line across the center. Lay a protractor on the line and mark at 30 degree increments. Draw lines on the 30 degree marks through the center to the other side of the circle to make the wedges of the color wheel.
