Color Theory 1: Color in Practice

In this beginner’s online workshop, we will focus on learning the basic concepts of color theory and how they apply when painting. Stephanie Lane will introduce you to the fundamental terms necessary to understand color mixing, tinting, and shading. You are encouraged to have acrylic paint on hand during the workshop. Have at least the primary colors—red, yellow, and blue—available, along with a few neutrals—black, white, and umber. Also, have a paint brush, some water in a jar, and a nice piece of paper to work on. If you don’t have these supplies at home, you can still learn about color theory. The theories learned in this workshop are prerequisites for the Intermediate Color Theory Workshop offered on May 25th. Come join the fun!
