Bath Painting Summer School

What students will achieve

Taking a technical, academic approach to colour, we will study traditional colour theory to produce colour charts and resources to use for future reference. Then, we will use these charts to learn how to match colours accurately and reliably. Through a series of exercises and lectures we will deepen our understanding of colour harmony and balance, finding out how and why colours affect one another in a piece of artwork.

Focussing on how we can employ colour within our work we will learn about the creation of harmonies and how to create a ‘palette’ that will express the mood of your painting more clearly.



Suitable for painters in any media with some previous painting experience.
