About This Class

Always mix just the right color.

No more piles of ugly 'what color is THAT?' We will work through some color theory together so you feel confident in knowing how to achieve just the right color mix for your painting.

I studied color mixing for almost three years and know exactly what color I will get when mixing my paint. That knowledge allows me to concentrate on other areas of my painting practice, like composition. In this class I am going to share what I learned with you.


If Monet had issues, we need all the help we can get!

What You Will Learn:

  • About paint quality.
  • Which paints to use to get 'clean' color mixes.
  • Understand why you sometimes mix 'mud'.
  • How to use complimentary colors.
  • Warm and Cool colors and why they are important.
  • How to mix neutrals and grays that sparkle.
  • How to use value successfully.

Donna Jean Engstrom

Mixed Media Artist and Creative Explorer

I've been an artist and teacher for over 30 years. Yikes! That's a long time, eh? Well worth every single minute. I love teaching and bringing the joy of creating to those who think they can't. You know who you are, 'can't draw a stick figure' come to mind?

My classes are easy to follow, full of encouragement with a dose of challenge, and based on my many years of teaching drawing, painting, collage, and bookmaking classes. 

I'm a signature member of the National Collage Society and am on the board of the International Society of Experimental Artists.

In my free time I enjoy reading out on my deck, gardening, and learning new things.
