PCA training is now offered in two states:

– Grand Rapids, MI, from May thru October

– Southern California, San Jacinto/Hemet from November to April

Have you ever thought about starting your own business? Do you like working with color, cosmetics, or fashion? Would you like to help others feel good about themselves? Then becoming a personal color analyst may be for you. Would you believe that in as little as 4 days you can learn the skills you need to be begin this rewarding career? It’s true. And you will be trained in the 12-Tone Personal Color Analysis Method by a certified Sci\ART™ instructor.

I enjoy teaching one student at a time, so you will have exclusive one-on-one training. I arrange to have 5 models for training, plus your own PCA.

How is My Training Different?

I train in a logical, systematic way. I’ve developed a PCA Guide, which is a document, exclusive to my students, that helps track our progress during a PCA. This guide also adds the various seasonal characteristics so we can see which dimensions of color are being compared. It allows analysts to decipher trends and analyze choices throughout the draping.

4-Day Workshop

Hours:  8:30 am – 5:30 pm (estimated – times sometimes vary)

Approximately 1 hour for lunch. Cost of lunch is not included in the tuition.

Tuition: $2,900. This fee is for training, The New Munsell Student by James Long, and a neutral gray Analyst Coat, 1 Client Cap, 1 Client Headband, 1 Client Cape, and other items listed below. A non-refundable deposit of $300 is required 4-6 weeks prior to training in the form of a personal check made out to Terry Wildfong or using PayPal (the email associated with PayPal is tjwildfong@aol.com.) The balance is to be paid, in cash, on the first day of training. If you do not wish to carry cash, I will accept a cashier’s check made payable to: Terry Wildfong.

*Additional class time can be purchased at a negotiated rate.


Test and Luxury Drapes: The drapes that correspond with your training can be purchased from Christine Scaman at www.12blueprints.com. These drapes are harmonized to Sci\ART palettes. No two color analysis systems are exactly the same. If you are not going to purchase these drapes, do not take this course. If you will purchase these drapes, it is very beneficial to have your set at training as no two sets of test drapes are the same and working with your set is very valuable.

Swatchbooks: 12-Tone

I find it important and beneficial if we can Skype to discuss possible training. There are usually many questions or concerns by the student, plus my own questions for the potential student. Emails are fine, but talking gets us through the information so much faster.


Policy Re: Continued Inclusion in the 12B/YND Community

One of the many benefits of being a 12Blueprints/YourNaturalDesign analyst includes membership in our elite Analyst Group on Facebook.  Here, information is shared among trainers and analysts, which supports all aspects of your color business.

Another benefit is that you and your clients will have membership in our Client Forum on Facebook. This group talks about season, makeup, clothing, color questions, and many other topics.

We feel strongly about supporting our analysts and clients as we all share in our dedication and belief in the SciART-based 12-Tone Method. Your inclusion in these groups is available after you have completed your training.

However, in certain instances, we may have to withdraw these privileges:

1. Should you decide to become a trainer yourself, putting you in direct competition with us, your membership in our FB Analyst Group will be revoked. No products or documents that were created or provided by 12Blueprints or YourNaturalDesign, or any of our analysts, may be used for reselling. Your name will remain on our website analyst directories with a note about the career path you have chosen, indicating a separation from our group for reasons of business expansion.

2. Should your philosophies, draping methods, client communications, and business practices differ greatly from how you were trained and how our system of color analysis is designed, as determined by Terry and Christine, your name will be removed from our website analyst directories. You will also be removed from our Facebook Analyst Group to protect information and images. If the differences are large enough, you and possibly  your clients will have your memberships revoked in our Facebook Client Forum as well.

3. We are committed to learning, progress, discussion, creativity, and exploration at the leading edge of our industry. These conversations require discretion and professional courtesy. Should your approach not uphold this standard of behavior, become detrimental to our teaching, or disrupt the communities in which the group participates, your membership in the online groups and analyst directories will be retracted.
