Workshop: An Introduction to Color Theory

This one day workshop will be an introduction to color theory as it applies to image-making. We will talk about primary, secondary and tertiary colors and how to mix them from a simple palette for a more personal take on color. We will also learn about how light, shadow and atmosphere affect color relationships in a painting. Students will also learn how to use color to create mood and drama and how to create and use clean color choices instead of muddy dull mixes. Students 17 yrs and above.

Class will form if a minimum of three students are registered by October 17, 2019
