True to you: Find your Personal COlor Palette Workshop
We all have our favorites...but how do you choose color combinations that are true to your artistic visual voice and that won't fight each other on the canvas?
How do you mix colors that are custom and unique, yet recognizable to viewers as being made by you?
In this workshop, we'll discover more about ourselves as artists, color mixing, exciting "color contrasts," and goof-proof color harmonies. Be prepared to learn a lot, not only about color but also composition, balance and saturation.
We'll explore how to create powerful compositions using dynamic color and powerful design. Each student will be encouraged to express their personal voice through a better understanding of what they love most in their art.
Students will learn how to mix and apply a wide range of colors, grays, and glazes differing in value, temperature and saturation through fun and experimental exercises.
