Workshop Overview

This two-day workshop includes a lecture, demonstration, hands-on instruction and a supportive critique that will guide you through the heart of visual artistic interpretation. We will approach each of the four-color harmonies individually through process, working with acrylic paint. Clear development and discovery will lead your creation with purpose and direction. We will become creatively driven by color, and develop strategies that promote specific harmony considerations that can be easily expanded upon in creative ways. Mixing color will be demystified. You will learn to tune relationships, train your eyes and mind to see beyond the box and discover your genius as you develop your masterpiece.
