Continuing Painting: Focus on Color
This mixed-level class will focus on color theory. We will explore the fundamentals of color perception, color harmonies, the ways artists (both past and present) have used color expressively, and the ways in which you can use color to express your own vision/ style. Whether you have had only a bit of painting experience or are a very advanced painter, you are welcome to this class where instruction will accommodate each student’s focus/interests, experience, and skill level. Students are invited to use acrylic or oil (or water-based oil) paint. Class discussion will help students learn to examine their own work with an eye toward growth.
