About the Course

Colour theory workshop
In a relaxing atmosphere, this therapeutic experience will teach you how to mix and use colour in your artwork. Suitable for all abilities.
This is a practical course using two different paints. The intention is to come away with reference charts to help you remember various processes so that you can then expand within your own practice.
The day will include the making of a theory chart with Gouache, understanding how important complimentary colours are to make colours sing together or create subtle soft shades. We will look at examples of artists work and then experiment with colour combinations.
You will also have the luxury of being able to mix oil paints to create a full range of wonderful colours. Learning from the practical application of subtle changes of colour enables you to see into colour and how it is formed, reinforcing your knowledge.
Solvents will be used to clean during this course.
