Colour & Brush 02

Completion of Colour & Brush 01 preferred but not required.

Cost $220

2 days, 9:30am to 3pm, Sat & Sun

A knowledge of Colour Theory expands our understanding and appreciation of the different ways that we as artists use color.

Some artists are captivated by the effects of light; some are absorbed in the symbolic meaning of colour; and some use colour to express their feelings. Colour theory in art can therefore be put under three headings:

  • Colour as Light
  • Colour as Emotion
  • Colour as Symbol

In this workshop we will explore the 3 headings and discover the vocabulary required to express our feelings about a creation or design. We will revise information learnt from the ‘Colour and Brush 1’ workshop and create small works on paper or canvas throughout the weekend.

This workshop can be completed in either acrylics or oils; a requirement list will be available on enrolment.

28 and 29 October
