July 8 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until July 9, 2019
July 8 – 9: In this 2 day introductory workshop students will learn to see, identify, and mix color. Students will gain an understanding of the language of color and how to control their mixing palette. We will create a comprehensive color wheel focused on the three attributes of color: value, hue, and intensity. After finishing this comprehensive color class students will have the ability to name and directly mix any desired color. We will learn to see the colorful world around us in terms of the twelve hues. We will discuss color theory and how to apply what we have learned from the wheel to the creation of paintings. Each class will begin with mixing demonstrations followed by group painting and individual instruction.
Please Note: if you are working in oil you will be outside and if you are working in acrylic you will be inside the classroom.
