    COLOR THEORY - Ellen Orseck

    Six Wednesday mornings

    NEW Dates

    May 23, 30, June 6, 13, 20, 27

    9:30am - 12:00pm  

    $200  

    Navigating color has often been a hit or miss intuitive proposition for painters.  Learning about color can open your work to new possibilities of expression.  Together we will master a clear understanding of hue, saturation, tint, shade, analogous, harmonious, and complimentary color and so much more.  Beyond the realm of primary and secondary colors are the rich and evocative varieties of tertiary colors - neutrals, grays, and blacks created from mixing primaries and secondaries. This course will cover the theoretical elements of color from Newton, Goethe, Itten and Albers and put them to the test with demonstrations and exercises that will bring you skill and confidence when exploring the psychological and aesthetic nature of color.

    LIMITED PALETTE WORKSHOP - Carla Gauthier

    Friday – Sunday, Nov 17, 18, 19
    9:30-3:30         $150

    Instead of buying every new color that comes out, learn what the colors you have can do for you! 

    Color can be overwhelming to painters, especially with all the new offerings out there. Understanding the properties of different tube colors is where we will start. Then we will move on to mixtures and what emotions they evoke. Limiting the palette of colors you use for each painting allows you to create a unified painting with a stronger sense of mood and energy. You will paint your own subject matter and together we will decide what colors will best convey the mood you want to create. The bonus of this class - the fewer colors that you paint with, the more energy and concentration you will have to devote to shapes, values, edges and movement in your painting. All levels.

    Just bring regular supplies like your palette, tubes of paint -bring them all, brushes and good quality paper, pencil, eraser, sponges and paper towels, and maybe masking fluid, masking tape.

They are both ephemeral and beautiful. In this section, we will cover both techniques of detail and free style. Plus dragonflies, bees, and butterflies. Peihong gives hands–on, step by step demonstrate attention to each student’s work. All skill levels.

    AFRAID OF THE DARK? EXPLORING THE DARK SIDE - Carla Gauthier

    Friday, Saturday, & Sunday
    August 10, 11, 12        
    9:30-3:30 pm           $150

    Have you ever been disappointed with the contrast and colors of a painting when you thought it had potential to be a strong finished work? Color dries lighter in watercolor, but it can also dry duller, and much more flat if you don't take the right painting steps. In this weekend workshop we will practice techniques and tricks to give your paintings strong contrast, with rich, varied color. We will demystify back-lit subjects, and work with edges to create velvety darks, and a strong sense of light.

    HORSES IN CHARCOAL AND WATERCOLOR -- Theresa Wilson

     Mon & Tues, August 18 & 19
    9:30 am-3:30 pm       $100 

    Horses capture the imagination in ways that few animals do, but translating that to paper can be a daunting task.  In this workshop we will look at how to draw and paint the horse in a convincing, yet expressive, way.  We will identify and develop strategies to draw the key aspects of horse anatomy.  Then we will have fun with charcoal and watercolor techniques to build form and give our horses life and individuality.  All levels.
