All the colours of the Rainbow! Learning about Colour!
Saturday November 15th saw Aida Guirguis's Fundamentals of Colour Workshop at Birdsalls.

Students learned about the colour wheel, primary colours and how all colours are a direct result from mixing two primary colours. Aida taught about chroma {intensity of colour}, tone and colour hues.

The students choose two primary colours, and then added one primary colour to the others gradually and observe the changes. They then gradually added different colours to see the effect and trialled the colours on leather.

The colour wheel was used on cardboard, with cut out pictures of matching colours from magazines to demonstrate how colour combinations work together.

"We all left with a better understanding of colour and colour combinations. Some people left with ideas and a good starting point for their own projects" says Jasmin.
A very informative and fun workshop!
