This colour study class is the perfect follow on class from our colour wheel lesson. It also works perfectly well on its own. As we look at creating tints and shades and then learn to draw a secret door in an old garden wall. Looking at shading and how to paint our artwork using just one colour tone.
Why study colour?
Colour is one of the essential building blocks of art education. Colour gives depth and emotion to a picture. Each of our students will be choosing one colour spectrum to work in. We will start the class by looking at where on the colour wheel that colour lands. We will look at how to make it or what colours it makes. We will create tints and shades from our colour. And using all these values we will create a colour study drawing.

Tips for a better class experience
Make sure that you are in a quiet room, no doors or windows open to outside noise, and as little through traffic as possible.
If it is your first time using zoom, test it out beforehand, make sure you have the app downloaded.
If possible use a larger screen like a tablet or a laptop, but a phone will also work.
When I am teaching, double tap (or right click and select pin my screen) to make sure that you are seeing me in large format.
Make sure you have all your materials ready to go – the list will be sent out before the class starts.
