Learn all about color while learning how to paint! Students will learn about color theory and put it to use through quick exercises and observational painting assignments. This workshop will begin with an overview of color theory through direct painting exercises and then move to longer assignments that employ color theory knowledge into observational painting. Readings related to color theory will supplement class work. Students will leave with color theory knowledge and foundational painting skills. Great for beginners or those who want to refresh their memory. Enrollment is limited to 15 students.
