Color Theory for Painters

Understanding color as a painter is essential. Using the Quiller color wheel, artist Trish Harding will walk you through the basic elements of color theory, going over the difference between pigments and color, where they come from, and how to make smart color choices. Using your chosen media (watercolor, oil, or acrylic), you will work on color mixing, including attention to value, intensity, and temperature. To quote Trish, "to understand color is to understand painting." For class supply list, click on "Notes" below.
