LESSON 1 : MIXING

The first class was about mixing colors. We learned about the primary colors, red, yellow, and blue, and how to combine those to make secondary colors, orange, green and purple. We created collage art by mixing paint on small sheets of paper, letting that dry, and then cutting those into flowers, leaves, and butterflies. Next, we glued the shapes onto a large sheet of paper and finished by creating a few details with more paint, colored paper, or pens.

LESSON 2 : ANALOGOUS

In this class, we learned warm and cool colors are analogous colors, which means next to each other on the color wheel. There were two projects this day. We drew warm-colored fish in cool-colored water with markers. It was a striking way to see the contrasting colors visually. The second activity of the day was a Neurographic art project. Neurographic art is an art form that was designed in 2014 by a Russian psychologist named Pavel Piskarov. It is a mindfulness exercise and lots of fun to create.

LESSON 3 : TINTS, TONES & SHADES

On this day, the artists in training were introduced to monochromatic colors using tints, tones, and shades. These concepts are an excellent step in learning to create depth in their art. They made a still life collage art piece by cutting fruit and vase shapes from colored paper and then using white and black charcoal pencils to add highlight and shade.

LESSON 4 : PAIRING

For our final class, we set about learning how to select colors that go together. The assignment was to lay down tape on our paper and then choose paint to color in the lines. They learned about different color harmonies like triadic colors and complementary colors. However, they could use color harmony from the other lessons when making their selections. The artists made fabulous choices resulting in some outstanding colorful art.
