Our monthly demonstration for July was cancelled due to COVID restrictions, but we came up with an alternative for August. Here we presented a video by Melissa Martin which is focussed on understanding colour.
The video is still available for viewing, so if you haven’t had a chance to view Mel’s informative and interesting video titled ‘COLOUR & EMOTIONS’, here it is for you to enjoy.
