About This Class

In this class we're going to take a deep dive into color mixing and creative color collecting! :) 

Join me and create your own color collecting adventure by finding the parts of this class that you find inspiring! The class is built in two parts: one where we'll dive deep into our hands-on color mixing techniques, collecting color swatches and color wheels, and a second part that will be all about creative color collecting, that builds on the knowledge gained in the first part of the class and challenges you to try a variety of color schemes and find your color language


You can go through this class chronologically, gaining all the technical knowledge and then diving into the creative prompts OR you can move from the technical part to the creative part and back. Feel free to do as many or as few exercises as you feel inspired to do. :) 


If your knowledge of color mixing is solid, then feel free to jump right into the second part of the class, to create a collection of different gouache paintings using specific color schemes and creative prompts. 

Color is one of my favorite subjects, not least because of how vast & beautiful it is. There are SO MANY possibilities for us to keep honing our personal artistic expression and I can't wait to see the work that you do and the paintings you create! :)
