Workshops

  • HOW TO MIX THE EXACT COLOR THE FIRST TIME – By the end of this all-day workshop you will be able to mix any color you want with only 7 pigments.  We will start by discussing the underlying physical and chemical properties of paint and light so that you will understand color mixing on a molecular level.  Then we will take an in-depth look at the individual concepts of hue, saturation, value, and temperature.  This section will be mostly hands-on that your fingers,  brain, and eyes all understand and work together in the color mixing process. During this time you will be creating your own color wheel and value scale (materials provided) which will be great tools to reference later.  Lastly, I will challenge you to put all the skills you just learned to the test.  You will amaze yourself at the mastery and control you now have over your color mixing!
