Course aim:
Use colour more effectively. Practical work to help you understand colour and how it is affected by the properties of different materials.
Course description:
Use colour more effectively. Make small pictures to help you understand and explore the effects of tone and colour using coloured pencils and acrylics or gouache. Enjoy the encouragement of a friendly and supportive group where the intention is to help each student produce increasingly confident and personal work. Sessions will start with an introduction and sometimes a demonstration. Each student then spends the rest of the session working on their own picture. There is help and feedback available from the tutor during the session and a chance to admire what everyone has produced at the end.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. demonstrate how to use a simple colour wheel to help with colour mixing
2. identify the component hues that make up a colour
3. mix primary colours and white in variable proportions to achieve a close colour match
4. apply different layers of transparent colours as an alternative to mixing
5. demonstrate awareness of the tonal value as well as the hue of a colour
How will I learn?

We expect you to attend your classroom sessions and make time to do any required learning activities on your own.

The WEA tutor will use a range of teaching and learning activities and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning. Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.

WEA Canvas online learning area

Whether your course is face to face or online, the WEA uses its online learning area, called Canvas, to support your learning.
