Color Exploration

I'm offering two sections of the same class. Both classes are full. 

We will be working in an intimate 1st floor, sun-filled studio space.

Color Exploration! (Wednesday and Thursday mornings)

Wednesday dates: April 26-June 14, 2017

Thursday dates: April 20-June 8, 2017

time: 9am -12

8 weeks



Have you been dabbling in painting but not quite sure where to go with color? We will start at the very beginning with simple color mixing scales and progress to a more complicated palette. We will build slowly starting with the basics and exploring many approaches to tackling color within a painting. We will be exploring the color and mood through monochromatic, analogous, complimentary and full color approaches. We will be checking out historical and contemporary painting examples, choosing a direction to go in subject wise and explore palette choices prior to each painting creating swatches, premixing color and tackling quick studies leading up to more involved paintings. You can work in any media you choose. This is an 8 weeks class and we aim to tackle 4 completed paintings. Have fun exploring color and finding your palette. This class is designed for students who have some painting experience.

Materials: I will supply acrylic, oil and watercolor paints. Each student should bring their own brushes, knives and surfaces for final paintings (which we will discuss on the first day of class). I will supply mixed media papers for color mixing exercises.
