Color Theory and Practice Workshop
Saturday, August 11, 12:00-5:00pm
Cost:$65.00 (not including materials)
This workshop is for the absolute beginners or intermediates, learning how to mix colors, mute them(change the color's intensity), darken them naturally with a complement color and avoid getting mud, but getting great grey tones that are harmonious with the painting. We will also use this information to create small studies to refer to when painting larger paintings. Students will be mixing their paints on canvas sheets, Duralar Matte or paper that is for acrylics or oils. The idea is for students to keep their paint mixes for future reference.
