Knowing how to use Color and Light in your artworks is one of the best skills to learn as an artist because it will help you take your artworks from good to great.

Communicate Your Stories and Emotions

I am excited to talk about Colors & Light today because I’d like to help you communicate your stories, and emotions with your audience.

Colors are definitely one of the main reasons I started to make art. They have been my passion ever since I remember. I was always mesmerized by how colors influence how we feel about art so I spent a lot of time learning about this topic and today I want to share this knowledge with you!

This class is for everyone who is curious about colors and want to enhance their artworks using color and light.

Removing the fear of the unknown, this class takes the guesswork out, so you can be more confident in creating your art and developing your own voice.

The class breaks the big topic of color and light into smaller parts to help you understand the main concepts so you can make your artworks appealing and believable.
