“WHY Blue and Yellow Don’t Make Green”

Instructor: Lise King Certified Teacher SoC

Cost: $250.00 (materials included)


As we study the nature of colour, the history of the colour wheel, pigments, temperatures and temperature, undertones or bias. While experimenting with colour mixing, we will discover why colour mixing is an art in itself and need an in-depth study in order to understand the relational colour behaviours of pigments to succeed in mixing clear brilliant colours, unless you want to tone down a colour. Nevertheless, you will be in control.

In this course:

  • We will study the history of the colour wheels
  • The analogy of subtractive and additive colours, (wavelength and absorption theories)
  • The natures of the coloured pigments and understand the theory behind pigments temperature biases.
  • We will learn how colour behaves in relation to each other’s colour biases.
  • How colour behaves in relation to other colours and shapes is a complex area of colour theory.
  • Compare the contrast effects of different colour backgrounds for the same coloured square.
  • We will apply these theories to create harmonious paintings.
  • Finally, we will explore by creating paintings based with these colour harmonious theoretical combinations.

Artist Statement

I am a Canadian Northern multi-media artist that strives to create thoughtful and balanced pieces of art, a representation of my experiences in my artistic journey as I paint a path through self-discovery.  I pour my soul into my painting revealing a bit of who I am by my expressions of how I view my world, which enables me to discover more of myself on a deeper level as I express my prose to the viewer. 

As a realist, impressionist or abstract artist, I strive to capture the viewer’s senses.  Then again, when doing abstract I allow the movement of the paint to inspire my creativity in the course of my painting.  I believe art is a convergence of my life’s adventures, self-exploration, mindfulness, meditation, a path to self discovery forever emerging and mutating as I ground myself in my work.

Learning a range of mediums has allowed me to experiment by intergrading layers of various textures to create depth and form in my paintings whether it is a realist painting or abstract.  It reminds me of life many colourful layers. These different mediums have allowed me to express myself in a unique manner the images envisioned in my mind eye. Art mimics life’s course as we mature, through various experiences building layers that form our characters, an individual colourful mosaic for the viewer to enjoy.

I wanted to let you know that I just received my online order of my favourite St. Armand Paper plus markers.  I am so impressed with your service – thank you so much.   I am a member of our local art centre here in Kimberley BC and we have very few choices of where to purchase our supplies.  We usually leave our buying list to when we make our four hour journey into Calgary.   You have made our lives so much simpler.   I will passing on your website to my artist group of friends. 

Thank you again.
I will be back.

I received your order promptly. I'm very impressed on how well packaged it was, as well as the choice of art supplies you have. I've now added you on my list of go-to suppliers...

Great job!

I do not do large orders often but have ordered with you once before. Your paint prices are so much better than Toronto art stores. If there are any product samples that you want to get rid of, I would be happy to receive them as I experiment with a lot of different supplies. Please save on packaging and send everything at one time. I stopped ordering from Amazon, because their overuse of packaging is out of control, and I prefer to support Cdn businesses as much as I can. Thank you for your great service, I had a great experience with my last order.

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for sending, at no charge, the taper point shaper, I really appreciate it. Aside from this, I meant to drop you a note after I received my previous order which was also my first. Thanks for taking such great care in packaging the items purchased, such professionalism is rare to find, thank you!

I hope I’ll be able to  broaden the array of items I will order from your store, I wish you’d carry PastelMat paper J

Take care
