Exploring Colour

We take colour for granted in everyday living. It helps us identify objects and products, orients us in our environment and enhances our sense of beauty. But colour is also a medium to create new images and to express thoughts and emotions. Working with crayons, watercolours, acrylics, oils, pastels or pigments, we will use a variety of colours to create art that conveys our thoughts and emotions. To deepen our understanding of this medium, we will study historical examples and create colour compositions individually, in small groups, and one- on-one with the instructor. We will practice expressing ourselves with colour.

Basic supplies are included in the cost of the course, however, please bring something to work on (paper, cardboard, canvas, wood) and, if you wish, whatever sources of colour you have used before.

Please note: this course is limited to 10 students
