Color I - Exploring Color: Color Theory & Color Mixing
Color

Experience color hands-on through making color boards, wheels, and value scales. Using the colors of The Atelier’s Paxton Palette, we will explore the attributes of color: hue, value, and chroma. Projects are paced by order of completion and working outside of class is recommended. This class is packed with information. Topics include the color wheel as it relates to painting with the Paxton Palette, mixing “mud”, Munsell and Gamblin color space, direct vs. indirect painting, color temperature, color harmony, and a bit of color history. Plus we’ll demystify the information on paint labels. Beginners to color welcome. Please contact Christine (cmitzuk@gmail.com) for what to bring to the first class. Familiarity with color attributes, or Color I or similar is strongly recommended before taking Color II. For classes with Christine, please make checks to C.M. Art Productions, LLC. (Checks to Christine Mitzuk cannot be accepted.)

Color II - Exploring Color: Color Theory & Color Mixing
Color

In an effort to be flexible and adjust with the COVID-19 situation, this class is planned to be online for the January – May session. If the case numbers flatten out again, we may switch to having Color II in person at The Atelier.

Deepen your understanding of color and expand your painting possibilities. We’ll put color theory into practice with exercises, and explore practical use of theory with various painting scenarios. The class will be a combination of presentations, demonstrations, and assignments. Topics include how to alter chroma, the relative nature of color, color harmony, simultaneous contrast, and more. Color I or a basic understanding of Hue, Value and Chroma are strongly recommended. Students will turn in assignments using The Atelier’s Google Classroom, so you will need a Gmail account. Each week students will photograph their work and turn in assignments. A well lit digital photo taken with your cell phone will work just fine. We will review everyone’s assignments during class and Christine will use Photoshop to make notes and paint over your photos. We will meet online via Zoom. We will be mainly using the Paxton Palette. Christine will be working in oil paint. Contact Christine if you have questions or to request a supply list: cmitzuk@gmail.com. For classes with Christine, please make checks to C.M. Art Productions, LLC. (Checks to Christine Mitzuk cannot be accepted.)
