Make color work! Understanding the dynamics of color relationships will help students more fully express their creative intent with each painting. Diane will lead students through demos, discussions, and many short exercises to explore light keys, color mixing, and establishing harmonious color relationships. The focus will be on a greater understanding of color dynamics rather than the creation of a single “finished” painting. Materials list is available online. Students should bring their enthusiasm and an open mind. All levels are welcome. Maximum of 10 students.
