The study of color is essential for all painters, and this condensed workshop offers the perfect format to answer all your color-related questions.  In-depth and practical instruction will examine the role of color in painting, including the selection and arrangement of palettes, the effects of paint layering, and an overview of color theory. Informative demonstrations covering color mixing strategies, interactions, and perceptual influences will guide students to execute small paintings in either oils or acrylics from varied subject matter. This workshop is appropriate for painters of all levels but will offer the greatest benefit to artists with prior painting experience.
