Course content

This course is focused on colour mixing and colour theory, so would be useful if you are a total beginner or more experienced but would like a refresher.

You will be using Acrylics, inks and watercolours and will look at how to mix the full spectrum, how to organise a palette, how to choose a limited pigment selection for painting.

We will also look at tone and hues, complimentary and opposite colours as well as the historical meanings of colours in art history.

Support and feedback

Tutor led exercises/demonstrations will support your developing skills. Feedback is given through one to one’s with each learner throughout the course with a focus on your individual needs as well as group discussion.

Additional costs and requirements

Basic materials provided but you may wish to bring your own sketchbook and materials if you prefer.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?

There will be handouts with suggested tasks/research that you may wish to do in your own time but this is optional.
