April Colour Course with June Harman AFCA

Posted in News, Workshops by kevin on March 8, 2017

Colour Doesn’t Matter: the painter’s paradox
A practical colour theory course with June Harman AFCA
http://www.juneharman.com
thumbnail_Whistler, June Harman
Today we are flooded with hundreds of alluring, exciting new colours that painters in previous eras could only dream about. With this abundance comes the paralyzing stress of too much choice. The paradox is that colour is the least important quality of the paint you use and if you are focusing on colour, your painting experience can become frustrating and stressful.

In this 3-class course you’ll do a series of painting exercises and learn a process that will equip you to make good colour decisions as well as the daring and unexpected colour choices that can elevate your work. You will learn to assess the more important qualities of value, saturation, and temperature before finally making the colour choice. If you have studied other colour theory systems, you will find this process augments what you already know. Colour is a slippery character–the more angles of approach you have, the better. Included in this course is an exploration of colour psychology and communication.

This course can be done using oils or acrylics, but acrylics are best for the technical range they allow.  You will use the paints you already have. On registration a full list of materials will be available.

Dates: Saturday April 8,  Saturday April 15, and Saturday April 22
Time: 11am to 4pm

Location: Kevin Dodds Gallery, 1101 Bank St. Ottawa
Cost: $250
Class size is limited to 6 registrants.
Register by calling June at 613-746-1424, or email june@juneharman.com
Please contact June if you have questions.
