• Students will understand how to read and use a color wheel.
• Students will learn how to create color harmony.
• Students will learn how to use color strings.
• Students will learn how to mix paint for desired effect of saturation, value, and hue.

The class will be taught in oils, but I will also accommodate those who wish to work in gouache, acrylic or a digital medium.
