Color Theory with Christine Holzschuh

March 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Color Theory with Christine Holzschuh

Saturday, March 4, 9 AM to 4 PM

Dive into the complex and illuminating world of Color Theory.  Gain knowledge how to choose, mix and match, and use colors.  Expand your artists talents and skills.
This is an intensive but fun workshop for anyone interested in color and choosing colors for painting or fiber arts.  Participants will bring their own paints and paint brushes; suggestions for new colors and using a limited palette will be discussed. There will be time for questions, and sharing during the day.  There will be hand-outs to help you remember the concepts, but bring a notebook for ideas and things you want to write down.  I highly recommend bringing a canvas paper sketch book to start your color journal. Other supplies will be provided.
Topics that will be discussed include but are not limited to:  Choosing Colors, The Color Wheel, Complimentary Colors, Split Primaries, Color triad, Warm and Cool colors, Value (hue and intensity), Contrast, Analogous colors, Expanded palettes, Harmonious Color choices, Light effects on color, Mixing colors, Tints and shades, and Controlling color mixtures.
There will be a 15 minute break in the morning and afternoon and 30 minute lunch break.  Coffee, tea and snacks will be provided.  Either bring a sandwich or you will have the opportunity to order one in the morning.
Cost is $140 or $125 for Chaffee Members.
