Color Theory Workshop
Saturday, January 26, 1:00-4:00 pm
Cost:$60.00 (not including materials)
This class will give you an overview of color principles and demonstrate how to apply them.
The elements of color, including value, temperature, saturation, hierarchy,
complements, light, harmony and contrast.
The use of color complements and learning how to mix vibrant and muted colors naturally with complementary colors to create a harmonious painting.
Using a limited palette in Acrylics (open or using retarder to slow down the drying time) or Oils this is for absolute beginners and a refresher for intermediates who want a quicker more reliable way of finding colors you want faster.
We would also use a method to color match for a couple of small paintings 6x6 which will show us how to create the color and match it to what we are seeing.
Through a series of demonstrations, you’ll learn how to work with color and ultimately make better color decisions.
