We recently had a vendor launch our SharePoint 2010 portal and now I would like to change the Font Color of the various Titles of the web parts. I am assuming this is controlled by css however I have no idea how or where I should navigate to make this change as I have no experience with SharePoint.

Do you have publishing switched on?

If you do then go to Site Actions -> Site Settings -> in the Look ant Feel Section Click on Master Page.

Then the CSS location will be specified there.

This is what Is selected.

Use Microsoft SharePoint Foundation default styles

So currently you don't have any custom styling on your site at all?

Ok. What I would do then is create a new css and masterpage and specify these in the Master Page option that I mentioned earlier.

Tools such as Firefox with the firebug add in (and I'm sure there are more options) should help you with this development task.
