This is the class that makes color easy and FUN! We'll cover color mixing in an easy to understand way. Even if you have never mixed colors before, you’ll be mixing like a pro by lunch time!! I promise! After you learn how to mix your own paint colors we'll create collages using our new found color knowledge. We will finish off the day with a round-robin collage exchange based on the book True Colors – it’s sure to get your color wheels moving!

Everyone will receive a comprehensive workbook + color wheel to take home. No note taking needed!
