Adult Workshop: The Joy of Color (Five Sessions)
After many years of teaching drawing & painting classes, I noticed that many of my students had a minimum knowledge of color theory. I have developed a five-week course especially for this purpose. By completing fun projects, students will learn more about color & obtain much needed expertise.

After many years of teaching drawing and painting classes, I noticed so many of my students had only a minimum knowledge of color theory. As a result, I developed a five-week course especially for this purpose. By completing fun projects, students will learn more about color and also obtain much needed expertise for all future classes. Not only will students learn how to mix a variety of pigments in several mediums, they will also have a new understanding of how color affects every aspect of our lives.
Although this is a course for beginners, it is helpful to have some basic drawing skills.
