About This Class

Color theory can be a tough safe to crack. 

Through a combination of instructional videos and hands-on exercises, this course will attempt to break down the beast that is color into a series of hands-on exercises that will help you to master color and create stunning palettes!

This course uses methods that I have developed through years of experimentation that should allow you (or at least help you) to use color more instinctively and freely. By the end of this course, you will have a general understanding of how to use color more abstractly and with less talk of technicalities and will be able to choose colors and create palettes that portray the mood you are trying to create.

Hi, thanks for visiting! I'm Jordan, and I've been an artist and storyteller all my life.

I've always been intrigued by the arts and the sciences alike, and this curiosity has an impact on the way that I approach my artwork and life in general. The most important thing to me has always and will always be the emotion people get from experiencing my work. I want people to feel something, and I hope that I can help encourage you as well.
