Colour Theory In Practice

Sean Wain begint

Do you really understand colour? Did you know that everything you look at -  artwork, fashion, interiors, gardens and buildings – all have colour theory behind them. Colour relationships, colour matching, colour schemes, colour mixing – you use it in everyday life and may not be aware of it. This course is designed to explore colour, whether it is for your curiosity, for a project, or your own art practice. Learn the fundamentals of colour, why colours are used, their origin, how to mix colours correctly and in turn how to make colours sit together to create a visual treat for the eyes. Using practical exercises and fun projects delve deep into the world of colour in this exciting new course.
