|Activity 1 - Introduction to Color Theory|
In this lesson you will learn the vocabulary and concepts of Color Theory and begin to understand firsthand some of the techniques and concepts artists use to create color relationships in their art. First we will explore the science of Color Theory in a class PowerPoint presentation and discuss how artist have used their knowledge of Color Theory in their paintings.
