Introduction to Colour Theory with Stéphanie Prest-Beaucher

Primaries, Secondaries, Tertiaries oh my!

Have you ever wondered why colours affect your eye in a certain way? 

Are you interested in learning about how colour combinations can create a certain mood or illusion? 

In this introduction to colour theory class, Stéphanie Prest-Beaucher will be guiding you through the process of creating a full spectrum colour wheel using only the primary colours. The colour wheel is one of the most important tools for an artist, assisting them to better understand how colours behave and relate to each other.
