Tutor: Elisa Crossing


Includes refreshments, BYO lunch 


This intensive workshop reveals how with just a basic knowledge of additive and subtractive colour theory, colour can be demystified. You will learn the characteristics of your pigments and their influence in colour mixes and be shown a system of mixing and matching colours which delivers accuracy every time. Finally, you will learn how to anticipate the way colours within a composition operate to generate drama and a sense of space.
