Color Premium Track

The Color Premium Track covers the most essential basics of color theory in a practical manner that can ultimately be applied to any field of art or art medium. Topics we’ll address include warm/cool colors, complementary colors, saturation, how to create color palettes, and more. The curriculum we will use is from our Color Track. (forthcoming)

Here is your opportunity to work with attention and comprehensive support from Prof Lieu and the Art Prof staff!

Watch a voice session

The best thing about the voice sessions for me was that staff wasn’t afraid to push me! Which is what I need as an artist, so it was very appreciated. I felt like I was getting good constructive feedback that was both helpful and respectful.

I also liked that other class members were encouraged to type their critiques in the chat. I ended up taking a lot of advice from my peers and implementing it into the final pieces.

Art Supplies

We understand that many people have limited budgets for supplies, so our premium tracks are structured so that you can use any materials you want, within that track’s focus.

For example, if you are doing the Painting Premium Track, you could choose any paint medium: watercolor, gouache, acryl gouache, acrylic, oils, water mixable oils, ink wash, etc. We provide a supply list with recommended supplies for each paint medium and are happy to provide further support, but you can work with whatever you have! Same with digital software: you can use Procreate, Photoshop, Krita, whatever you have access to.
