Why do some colors go well together, and others clash? Why do paints sometimes look different in the paint store than on the walls of your home (thought the pigments are identical)?

In this workshop, we'll paint and play with colors while learning the fundamentals of color theory. For artists and everyone else who would like to understand color better. All levels welcome.
