During this 4 day course, you will learn the theory, process, and practice of Personal Colour Analysis (PCA).

With 7 draping models (5 women, 2 men, including yourself) and focussed private instruction (one student per course), you will acquire the skills and confidence to analyze your clients and guide them in applying them their colour palette in all aspects of their appearance, including apparel and accessories, cosmetics and hair colour.

Location is London,  ONTARIO, CANADA.

Step 1: Becoming a Colour Analyst

The process begins by sending me an e-mail (  to introduce yourself and your interest in owning a colour analysis business in your community.

We will schedule a meeting on Skype to talk informally about your plans and to ask me any questions you may have. It is helpful to have a list of questions prepared.


Step 2: Dates and Travel 

Courses are scheduled according to your availability and mine. We can discuss possible dates by email and/or finalize this decision during our meeting.

Once the course is scheduled, you will receive detailed information regarding:
  • travel and accommodation
  • our daily schedule
  • what to bring and wear
  • suggested reading and course preparation

The introductory package is shipped once the deposit is paid (US250), 2 to 4 months before the course begins. The package includes:
  • introductory letter for the course and meeting clients
  • training manual
  • neutral gray paint swatches
  • neutral gray fabric samples
  • 12 Season map
  • analysis method flow chart

Step 4: Setting up Your Studio

Ideally, you will begin draping your practice clients within 2 weeks of the course completion. The wealth of information and techniques gained during the course is so rich that the sooner they are put into practice, the more may be retained.

Having a preliminary or workable draping location ready before the course is recommended. The training manual includes comprehensive shopping lists. You will also receive a PDF document outlining options and selection criteria for larger items, such as the client chair, mirrors, and full spectrum lighting.
