Brilliant Class

This is an amazingly in-depth master class in color theory. I am looking forward to going back over it slowly and thoroughly , probably many times. It is worth reading through all the discussion questions because Joen answers them so completely. I've been studying color theory for years and I learn something new every time I go back through a lesson here. Thanks so much, Joen. This is a gem.

Getting pure blue from mixing turquoise and magenta is magical. Even if you skip the painting most of this class relates to fabric. You'll end up understanding depth, luminosity, luster and lots more.

Fantastic explanation of colors!

Her presentation skills are of a college professor; so work with her and drink plenty of coffee!!. And if you are patient, the rewards will be endless in your walk through the majestic world of color! God bless this instructor and ...

Great Class!

This is a great class because it introduced a completely new perspective to me. I had a hard time to "get it". I think this is because the instructor perceives and thinks in a different way than I usually do. But this is what is so fascinating about it. She shares her perceptions with me and gives something to me that I would have never gotten without her. I also like the style of the class. Yes, at first I also thought: Why does the teacher feels so awkward in front of the camera? ...
