Course number : NCR 9711   
« back to classes page

Whether you are painting in Watercolor, Oil, Acrylic or Gouache, this class is for you. This class will help if you have ever had any difficulty mixing colors or choosing a combination of colors for your paintings.

Using just a limited number of tube colors, you will learn how to directly and accurately mix the exact colors you need and want for each painting. You will also learn, with the help of the Three Bears, how to understand the Color Wheel and use it as an invaluable aid to making your paintings more harmonious overall.

Handouts will be shared to help you to remember what you will be learning in this class.

The materials list is available on our website.
