Participants enjoying the hands on side of Colour & workshing through the worksheets Sharon had set up.

At the workshop we developed confidence with using colour by learning how to mix the colour you wanted every time, using the double primary mixing system. The colour wheel and the most commonly used colour schemes will be gradually introduced, with the aim of developing a strong foundation in the understanding and use of colour. Experience was gained through practical hands on sessions using coloured paper and paint. This workshop was coordinated with the Brigalow Arts Festival here in Biloela this week.
