SEPTEMBER 2015 WORKSHOP: MASTERING COLOUR

Select Fine Art Materials in association with the Kevin Dodds Gallery Presents:

 

Workshop:                 “Mastering Colour” with Christopher James

Date and Time:         September 18 and 25  from 10 am until 4 pm

Location:                    Kevin Dodds Gallery and Studio, 1101 Bank St. Ottawa

Cost:                           $150 + tax, Materials are included

 

The workshop is 12 hrs in length and will be held on two consecutive Fridays, 6 hrs per day.

Mastering Colour will introduce you to the three dimensions of colour: hue, value and saturation.

This is a class about colour harmony and colour mixing. Students will work with a high-key minimal palette and learn how to use four colours, plus white, to mix a full range of colours.

Manipulating each aspect of color can be a daunting task but this workshop will give you the tools to accomplish this and not lose sight of your painting. By understanding how to mix your colors you will be able to create a greater sense of light. So, rather than representing white as light you will learn to see how to make color represent light.
