About This Class

In this class you will learn to mix and chart 36+ colors from only 6 base colors. We will cover how to mark and tape a grid for your chart.

At the completion of this class, you will have solid knowledge of how to chart any colors with confidence. Beginner and intermediate level students or anyone wanting to expand their options for color mixing and charting will benefit from this class.
