Navigating Color Space

Spring is around the corner and this is a great time to talk about color as spring usually explodes with opportunities to copy-cat whether in painting, collage, beads or decor.

Here is a video by Gamblin Oil paint to make sure your colors “work” together.

About Beads & Brushstrokes

Beads & Brushstrokes, formerly Country Bumpkin Arts and Crafts as been serving the lowcountry for 24 years. We have grown over the years just as the families we have served. We get a kick out of seeing the children of children who took classes here over 20 years ago.

Today, there is very little "country" in Country Bumpkin, but like a "bumpkin" there remains a lot of free spirit and creative living.
