Color Theory: All the Colors of Art

Have you ever wondered why some colors on the color wheel look good next to another, but ugly when paired with others? Or why mixing together red and blue make purple? Well in this class students will do a deep dive into Color Theory, learning about the basics, like primary and secondary colors from the color wheel, and building from there into more complicated topics, like Analogous, Complementary, and Intermediate Color Theory!  We will learn about these topics, and more, by seeing multiple different examples, discussing its history, and finally learning about their applications in the art world. Students will not only learn about these topics in an interactive setting but they will also apply them to creating unique and exciting art pieces, delving into not only our topic but other art medias too. This class will push the students understanding of colors application and use in the art world, giving them a better understanding of the topic and letting them take this knowledge in to not only their own art creation, but their everyday life. So get your color pallet ready, because we are going to become color theory masters!
