Color Theory class for adults on March 4 is part of B1V1 partnership

Art Supplies

An adult art program in Color Theory  offered in early March   is part of a new partnership between the Arts Council of Johnson County After Action Network’s Operation: Art, and the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.

Participants in this Color Theory  B1V1 class for ages 18 and older will explore the medium of acrylic paint by practicing color mixing and color balance. Artists will learn to show a consistent and controlled appearance in their final projects using a color theory grid technique. 

The arts partnership comes into play because this program is part of the Buy One Vet One (B1V1)  program.  Any program designated as B1V1 will include an additional $5 fee allowing a veteran to join the same participating program at no cost. This charitable program is presented as part of a grant awarded by the Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission. Learn more about Operation: Art by visiting 

To find the Color Theory B1V1 class in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under adult and then under fine & performing arts. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search,  look for the keyword “art.” 

Color Theory  B1V1 is offered beginning at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 4 at the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park. The cost for one two-and-one-half-hour session is $35 per person for Johnson County residents or $40 per person for nonresidents or register online at

Other B1V1 programs being presented by JCPRD this season include: Faces and Figures on March 9, 16, and 23; Interview Theater Workshops beginning April 4; and Portfolio Prep beginning April 8.
