You'll spend the first half of class creating an intense color wheel which illustrates how everything about color mixing fits together as a whole, and gives an astonishing range of colors from only 3 primaries. Learn essential information about color pigments, transparency vs. opacity, mixing clean colors, glazing, and using mediums to alter the paint and control the drying time. Follow up with info and exercises that further hone your ability to mix any color you see. GOLDEN acrylic paints will be provided for study and the information can be applied to oil, watercolor, and other wet media. This is a great foundation for beginners, but even advanced artists will be surprised at how useful this class is. Free GOLDEN literature, hand-painted color charts, and paint samples will be provided. No previous experience necessary.
