The Atelier Studio Program of Fine Art


Exploring Color: Color Theory & Color Mixing

Experience color hands-on through creating color boards and value scales. Using the colors of The Atelier's Paxton Palette, we will explore the attributes of color: hue, value, and chroma. Projects will be paced by order of completion and students will work at their own pace. We’ll discuss the color wheel as it relates to painting with the Paxton Palette. Topics will also include mixing "mud", Munsell and Gamblin color space, direct vs. indirect painting, color temperature, color harmony, color psychology, and a bit of color history. Plus we'll demystify the information given on paint labels. Please contact Christine ( for what to bring to the first class.
