In this workshop you’ll learn how to:
· Express different emotions with different color combinations

· Apply realistic colors vs. enhanced colors in a painting
· Discover your sensibilities and life experiences make you prefer certain color palettes
· Work with your own color sensibilities to create art that is more personal
