Event description

Description

In this full day workshop students will explore how colour works in relation to its neighbors on the colour wheel. We will paint our way through true primary , secondary and tertiary colours along with analogous and complimentary colours. Along the way we will gain some language about colour from hue, warm , cool, tint, tone, intensity , simultaneous contrast, lustre and what each colours value is on the grey scale. We will also look at Colour Theorists, Itten, Munsell, and Goethe. This is a hands on workshop where you may use the paint you already have to create useful colour wheels and value scales that help you further understand what your chosen palette can do .

If you are wanting to explore colour theory in its truest sense then using gouache** is the best medium to be working in as it dries quickly, matte (with no sheen) , is opaque, and does not flake. Turner and Pebeo are great brands. We want paint to be ideally opaque and matte so the hue won’t be influenced by the surface or by the shininess of the paint. **Colour theory can be done in any paint medium; watercolour, oil, tempera, and acrylic; however all of them have their own challenges. Watercolour should not have the use of white as the paper acts as the white and paint is transparent but does dry quickly. Acrylic comes in many brands that varies in sheen, transparency and opacity along with “open paints” that are sticky and take a really long time to dry. Tempera of a low quality will mix unevenly with a gritty nature and can flake off after it dries.

Fee $110 (including Taxes)
