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.)
