Color Kit includes:

  • A custom-printed set of color constant cards, one for each of the twelve Hue families.

  • A color wheel template thermofax screen.

This class studies complex color relationships using acrylic-based paints. The emphasis is not on dyes; although there is an essay on applying the information to fiber reactive MX dyes included in the Appendix. The class is geared toward any artist with an interest in better understanding color relationships, in order to more effectively mix and use paints of all kinds.

  • Six bi-weekly sessions exploring Hue, Value, Intensity - the three attributes of color.

  • An introductory color “kit” to establish your color constant - including dyed fabric samples, color cards, painting templates and a list of supplies to get started.

  • Video lessons demonstrating how to work with the twelve color families using tools you’ll create. Watch me do it and then try it yourself.

  • Opportunities to ask questions, and get personal feedback on weekly assignments

Limited enrollment (due to the nature of feedback to participants).
