You will learn the science of color, color theory, and how to use a color wheel to create great color combinations.

We will discuss the emotional aspects of color, including color therapy as well as the meaning and symbolism of color.

Margie Deeb, author of The Beader's Guide to Color said "You can learn to use color in extraordinary ways. You already possess the most important tools: your passion and sense of wonder. Learn the tangibles, and let your passion and wonder take you where knowledge cannot. Let color thrill you. Seek its magic. Talk to it and listen with all your senses. Thus begins your never ending journey into the magic and mystery of color. Color is so amazing! You will never look at anything the same way again!" Let the Journey begin!"
