Colors of the Rainbow

An Introduction To The Color Wheel

This class explains the relationships of colors, how to mix them, and use them in your artwork. Over four videos, Karen will walk you through her method of understanding color, mixing color, and using color more effectively to enhance your art.

This class is a great way to jumpstart your creative revolution, recommit to your creative practice, or simply have fun playing with color in a new way.

Think of this as a creative spark to get you moving towards making more art. At the end, you'll be invited to join Karen's online community of creatives.
