On-Line Class: Color Theory

If you are serious about learning color, how it behaves, 
how it interacts with other colors:
I highly recommend this course with the fabulously talented
Judy Coates Perez

Color Theory
9 weeks, on-line, $60.00

It is a basic, beginners course.
It is technical yet very clearly presented and well written.
I've read through the entire course and promise that if you actually
DO THE WORK that you will come away with a much clearer understanding of color interactions.

Here is how Judy describes the course:

Did you know the color choices you make can transform an average piece of artwork into something spectacular? Be surprised and delighted by the effects and illusions you can create by understanding the mysteries of color. In this hands-on experiential class you'll learn key color concepts with visual examples, mix new paint colors, and create helpful charts, all providing you with the tools you’ll need to see color in a whole new light. 

As part of this class you will start a color journal and learn to mix color using textile paints, creating charts to address the different color theory principles.

Lessons include:
The color wheel
Color Schemes
Tints, Shades and Tones
Value Color Studies
Complimentary Color

The class website is designed for students to work at their own pace with each lesson accessible at any time. The lessons include color diagrams and examples with explanations of the different principles for working with color. After each lesson you will blend colors and paint swatches of color to make a chart to fully understand each weeks lesson.
