colour theory / colour terms / colour mixing exercises – building a colour dictionary folder

Tuesdays 9.30am - 12.30pm (3 hours with breaks)

Learn to mix the colours you want, without the usual trial and error waste of paint!

Covering Itten’s colour wheel (cold and warm versions) colour hues / tone / saturation and temperature, we’ll make an A3 dictionary folder of colour exercises using acrylics (but relevant to any type of paint). Learn about secondary, tertiary and complementary mixing, harmonious and accent colours, and tints and shades.

Very interesting and therapeutic, with lots of discussion on results and examples of artists' use of colour! An optional follow-on course in the Spring term offers practice in applying colour mixing, painting a variety of general subjects. .
