A background in color theory will help you be successful in your paintings and eliminate a lot of the frustration that comes with mixing the wrong colors together and creating "mud". If you have some basic knowledge in color theory this class will reinforce what you have learned and take you through the next steps of applying those skills. For those of you that are starting out with color theory, I will introduce you to the concepts of mixing colors, color temperature, what colors mix well together and what ones don't and why. We will then apply all of these skills in exercises you will want to keep in your studio for reference time and time again. 

This class is appropriate for beginners to advanced levels.
