What are the primary colors?

I am really interested in color, now I'm too young but in the future I'd like to study art and be a talented artist.
My mom told me all colors are made from a few primary ones. What are the primary colors?

Red, yellow, and blue are primary colors. They are the three pigment colors that cannot be made by mixing any other colors. These three colors are mixed to create all other colors and can be combined with white or black to create tints (lighter tones) and shades (darker hues) of these colors.

The three "primary colors" for additive combination are red, blue and green. All edited colors in computer images use a combination of these three. When added together, these component colors form the color "white".

In printing, these three colors were superceded, the modern equivalents being cyan, magenta, yellow and black.

The primary colors are RED, BLUE, and YELLOW! If you go to an art class/teacher they will say the exact same thing as me. Trust me I took art classes for two years so I know. =)
