This course will teach basic colour theory and how ratio's of primary colours affect colours. Students will create between 15-21 different colours using 3 primary colours. Students will learn how different types of dyes will produce different colour variations. Colour samples will be shared with everyone in the class so that students can leave with colour samples from different dye companies.
