Introduction to Color in Oil or Acrylics

This course is a 3-day intensive study covering the use of color with emphasis on how seeing relates to color choices. Students will gain a good foundational working knowledge of how to mix and use color as it relates to making artwork. The class will be exposed to many color theories, which will be put into practice. Each lesson begins with the concepts to be covered, demonstration of the techniques, hands on experience.
