About This Class
In this installment of Art School Boot Camp, we’re diving into the deep world of Color. Color is often the most confusing and frustrating part of art making—but it doesn’t have to be that way!
In this mini-class, Christine will introduce the color wheel and quickly explain terms like hue, intensity, saturation,value, tints, and tones. She’ll take you through the primary, secondary, and tertiary colors, and introduce the five basic color schemes. Then she’ll take you through two simple step-by-step processes of choosing and making a color palette using color harmony and inspiration.
If you’re looking to dive deeper into color, be sure to download the Project Guide PDF when you enroll! Included in this PDF is extra information on color relativity, harmony, brightness, tips on using value successfully in your colors, as well as some color inspiration from Christine's favorite artists!
By the end of the class, you’ll have a better idea of how color works, two simple processes to use when coloring future artwork, and your own brilliant color palette!

I've never learned much about color theory or picking colors and tend to lean heavily on black and white. This was really helpful i feel like it's something to work at!
