Time:  10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Please arrive at 9:30 a.m. to set up

Class Description:  Learn how to mix the exact colours you wish each time, no more ‘mud’, along with many other important and useful techniques necessary for harmony. The use of neutral areas, proportions, clarity, playing warms against cools, making colour ‘glow’, setting the mood, values and accents in colour etc. 

A thorough colour knowledge assists in beautiful work as well as peace of mind in the often-confusing task of colour mixing.  (we will be making our own 12-point colour wheel, based on the 12-hour clock)!  One exercise will mix ‘requested’ colours and explains why we used what we did for the result.
