Whatever mediums you use, understanding how to use colour is important, from under-painting to applying glazes and making a yellow sing and a red recede.

In this half-day course, you will mix colours to produce your own colour chart, learn the importance of tertiary and complementary colours, experiment with saturation and have fun just ‘playing’ with paint and materials.

A relaxing, informative course of theory and experimentation, please notice that no finished art piece will be made.

Age: Adults & Teens

Cost: £25 (all materials included)
