Four Thursdays, March 7 - 28

For Ages 18+

Learn the language of color, from monochromatic and neutral to analogous and complementary, and explore how to use (or omit) color to activate a painting. Students will examine color in the Crocker’s permanent collection, learn about color mixing by painting a color wheel and chart, study color properties and harmony, and apply newly acquired skills and knowledge to produce a painting on canvas and a small color study of a still life.
