Online Video and Written Instruction
Are you struggling to find the perfect cast of colors for your next artwork? Does all the talk of color schemes just confuse you? It doesn't have to.
In this playful and entertaining course Lyric takes you on a tour through color theory, explaining each scheme with entertaining and easy to remember metaphors. She helps you understand how colors relate to each other and how they function alone, or together, because color is ALL about relationships!
Lessons consist of concrete exercises that are clear and easily understood as well as ample encouragement from an award winning teacher. You don't need to have drawing or design skills as this course has been created to inspire and teach both the timid beginner and the confident creative. Lyric's easily followed instructions lead you to understand color relationships like never before.
You have access to all of the lessons immediately upon registration. This class can be completed in a few weeks and will be open for one year (likely much longer.)
A New Tool for your Artist's Kit!
- No new unfinished projects, just a new understanding of how color relationships that you can use in your next work!
- No supply list, use what you have around the house.
- Use any media you like! Paint, textiles, crayons! As long as it's colorful, it works!
- Learn to use color intentionally, you already use it intuitively!
"❤️ Thanks for all of your feedback AND encouragement - such a great ‘kick in the ass’ class!" - Pam Lowe
This course includes space for you to share your pictures and get feedback from your classmates. The more you contribute, the livelier class will be. Lyric will pop in twice a week to give feedback on each picture posted. This platform provides a safe space for a lively and sharing creative community to explore without judgement and competition.
Just like in a live classroom, you'll be able to see your fellow students work and discuss how things are going. You'll get encouragement and instruction from Lyric on all the work you post.
Supplies consist of things you already have at hand so you won't be time or money shopping for things you might not use again. The most important supply is an adventurous willingness to explore, grow, and play as you learn to see and create within the framework of abstract design. Doodles will be scribbled, eyes and minds will be opened, and fun will be had. Won't you join us?
The classroom opens as soon as you register.
You can introduce yourself and familiarize yourself with the online classroom.
