Colour can be used to evoke emotion and change perception. This course begins with a brief history of colour theory, however the main objective is to apply colour theory to your practice. We'll review artists who use colour as their theme or point of departure; explore colour using various exercises; and discuss colour harmony, warm vs. cool colours, achromatic colours, tints and shades, and monochromatic colours. Colour blending and mixing is also an essential part of this course.
You're welcome to use your choice of paints, or even any other media, such as pastels, pencil crayons or fabric.
