Color theory is an essential part of education for artists and is often the first class for most mediums. Most quilters learn how to select their fabrics in what Jennifer calls “color theory by trial.” She asserts all quilters are artists and can benefit from learning color theory. One fabric, even if it is fabulous by itself, can ruin the overall look of a quilt simply by being the wrong color. By learning color theory, this expensive mistake can be avoided. In this workshop, students will learn: the different types of color wheels (yes, there are more than one), how to use a color wheel, common color combinations, how to vary the intensity of color in your quilt, and how to select a color scheme for your next project. Students will practice making their own color schemes. Jennifer will give students a fun, easy pattern in which they can use their newly trained “eye” for color.
*Special Note* - This class is a pre-requisite for ALL of Jennifer’s Bargello classes. She is designing a beginning Bargello quilt for a class in September and will also teach an intermediate Bargello pattern in October.
