Have you ever been frustrated when choosing colors for an art project, sewing project, painting or even deciding what to wear? Does it seem that sometimes you get it and other times you don’t? Learning basic color theory will give you the tools, knowledge and understanding to make those choices a whole lot easier and more fun. In each 3 hour class, we will cover a different aspect of color theory by coloring one or two worksheets and then apply those concepts in the creation of small paintings.
Color Theory Classes:
Basic color terminology, and the color wheel. Monochromatic – Value, Intensity & Saturation
Color Relationships – Analogous, Complimentary, Near Compliments & Proportion
Color Relationships – Contrasts and how colors affect each other. Contrasts with Neutrals, Simultaneous Contrast, Contrast of Saturation
Students will make a set of reference worksheets on color theory, and one or more small paintings each class using the concepts presented each day.
