Color I - Exploring Color: Color Theory & Color Mixing


with Christine Mitzuk

Calendar Sep 22, 2022 at 4 pm, runs for 14 weeks

This class is packed with information and color mixing. Each class is part work time, part presentation and discussion. Using the colors of The Atelier’s Paxton Palette, students will create color boards, a color wheel, and value scales. Projects are paced by order of completion. Through these projects, students learn about the attributes of color (hue, value, chroma) and temperature, how to bend color mixes towards different color biases, and why a 50/50 mix does not make a middle value or middle color. The presentations will cover the color wheel as it relates to painting with the Paxton Palette, how we see color, mixing “mud”, Munsell and Gamblin color space, some color history, we’ll demystify paint tube labels, and more. We will work on the color boards during class time. Additional time spent on them outside of class is recommended. Beginners to color welcome. Please contact Christine (cmitzuk@ for what to bring to the first class.
