This class will provide a solid grounding in the basics of colors and color mixing. Using acrylic paint, brushes, and canvas board, students will create a color wheel with primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. Also learn and see the effects of tints, tones, and shades. How colors effect one another, use of transparent or opaque colors, qualities of complementary colors, and how and when to use analogous or complements will also be covered in this 3 day class.

Taught alongside Color theory I, Color Theory II will offer more for intermediate or advanced students. Mixing, overlapping and matching colors will be the focus of this class. We will create the color you see, in tints, tones and shades, bright and dull, using acrylic paint as the vehicle. Choose an image you feel comfortable working with, and please bring in more than one reference, at least 10, so that we can choose something together. Consider photos from magazines, other paintings you can copy, or photos of your own. You can also bring in unresolved work from other efforts in acrylic. Adrian will help you match the color and learn to apply it.
