Elizabeth B.Tucker Color Workshop

         Elizabeth Tucker2

Understanding Color and How to Mix It:

How to Teach Your Colors to Play Well With Others 

Workshop 1: Tuesday, July 14-Thursday, July 16: 1-4PM $75 plus $25 materials fee.
Workshop 2: Monday, July 20-Wednesday, July 22: 1-4PM $75 plus $25 materials fee.

The purpose of this course is to teach you how to understand each color on your palette, what it is capable of and, as importantly, what it isn’t able to do, allowing you to mix clean colors every time.

The representational image on the left showcases the difference between mixing muddy colors versus clean colors.

Through a series of exercises you will learn the direction that a color leans, and then using that information mix the colors that YOU want to mix every time.

We will be mixing colors using the basic palette and then do several simple still lifes to see how to use your colors and how one color in a set up acts with other colors that are in the set up. As time permits we will analyze colors that are on your palette and see where they fit in your color wheel and how they work.
