Tutor  Peter Clayton


Learn how to make the most of colour to make your prints more expressive. The aim of this course is to help you think about colour creatively and as an integral part of your printmaking practice. It will introduce you to terms which will help you understand and analyse colour in your own work, the work of other artists and the world around you.

In this day long course we will examine terms such as hue, saturation and tone, warm and cool palettes, opacity and transparency and how to use them to mix a wide variety of colours from glowing primaries to subtle greys.
