It’s a Colorful World

Come delve into the history of color, how color is perceived, and how we can use color to make our painting more interesting, vivid, and emotionally charged.

What is color? How can we use color to make our artwork more interesting, vivid, and emotionally charged? In this class for all levels—from beginning painter to experienced artist—we will delve into the history of color, the ways it is perceived, and how we can use it in our painting. We will learn basic color mixing techniques, ways to stretch tonal and subtle colors, how not to mix muddy colors, and ways artists past have used color in unique ways. Part workshop, part art history lesson combined with a good run through of methods and materials, this class will be interesting and useful to painting students. Come enjoy and discover…what could be better?

A materials list will be provided.
