About the Workshop

Learn to see color through painting still life. By working with a variety of still-life setups, we will discern color relationships and translate them into paintings. For beginning students, the workshop will be a pathway to painting from observation.  For advanced students, the workshop will answer questions such as “why can’t I mix that color?” Participants will learn to relate color and value, and to discover why color looks different depending on surrounding colors.  The class will demand a lot both intellectually and visually, but we will have fun all the while.
