For Ages 18+

For this two-part class, you will begin with a lively discussion about color theory and discover how abstract artists use color to create harmony. Then, gain experience using a palette knife to apply paint and build layers of texture on a canvas. In the second session, illustration will be the focus. Participants will play with a variety of drawing instruments, such as pencil, charcoal, and sharpie to create original artwork that fuses painting and illustration.
