COLOUR MIXING COURSE WEEKEND @ Art Courses Wales ( £195 and 1 earlybird place left )




A colour mixing course  is essential grounding for most visual art practices such as interior decorating, design , textiles, printing and painting. No drawing skills are  needed or required. It is three days of being totally immersed in the magic and understanding of colour and  learning  the methods used to make colour sing. This course is highly recommended and popular. The fees include all materials.

The course  is designed to give you a practical understanding of  colour theory needed for painting and design. You will learn the fundamentals of how to mix and cross mix colours, match, enhance and apply it. The pieces of work you will end up with will be invaluable reference material as well as art works in themselves. After working on various exercises and colour charts this knowledge is then put to task working on abstract designs as well as painting directly from observed objects and backgrounds.

Click  “here”  for examples of  previous colour mixing course work. The examples shown  illustrate what can be achieved by only using white and  the three primaries of red ,yellow and blue. In addition to this all the blacks/darks were made from the 3 primary colours and likewise all the greys.
Some quotes :
“In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is – as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art”. Josef Albers
“In order to change a color it is enough to change the colour of its background.” – Michel Eugene Chevreul
“Light is a thing that cannot be reproduced, but must be represented by something else – by colour.” – Paul Cezanne
 “The chief function of colour should be to serve expression.” – Henri Matisse
“All colours arouse specific associative ideas…” – Yves Klein
