About This Class

Welcome! This is a class designed specially for beginners or anyone who wants a firmer grasp on the fundamentals of color theory and it's practical application. In this class, we're going to talk about how to apply color theory to your work so you can make thoughtful and informed color choices. This class also features two demonstrations where I explain my thought processes for selecting colors, since getting in the right headspace is crucial for seeing and choosing the right colors for your projects. The supplemental class material also features a glossary of key terms, tips and tricks, an overview of the color harmonies discussed in the video (and a few extra ones), a color wheel and two additional assignments (for those of you who want to get some extra practice in).
