Exploring color is a fascinating aspect of art, as it can be used in many intriguing ways to enhance a painting. It can create a mood of peace or one of excitement. It can be used to direct the viewers eye to the focal point, demanding attention. And it can be applied in ways that enhance the warmth of the light. This class will help you unlock the exciting mystery of color in ways that enrich your paintings, causing emotional excitement. Kathleen will walk you through various exercises to help you explore color options and choices. These exercises will help you learn to mix colors, choose colors, and use colors in ways that harmonize your scene and grab your viewer’s attention.

All levels may attend, but some working knowledge of your paint is necessary.
