Explore the ideas and concepts behind the creative languages of painting with acclaimed artist Tom Balderas. In this four-week class, Tom will work with and demonstrate two painting languages, value and pure color. Painting from direct observation, whether working from the still life, a land/seascape or a figurative motif, you will focus on the nuts and bolts of these two languages and learn how to use these, as Tom does, to help create poetry in your paintings.
