About This Class

To get better at art knowing the very basics of the colour theory is a great place to start. It will help you create what you want and to understand more advanced tutorials. This is a super basic overview of all the things I think are super important for you to know to get started. 

This is a super short, straight to the point class to help you get started!

You can find additional notes on the videos and on the class project page!
