Three Tuesdays, November 10-24

It’s not all pies, pies, and more pies! Celebrate Wayne Thiebaud’s 100th birthday with one, two, or three classes that explore all aspects of his unique draftsmanship. In Color and Composition, delve into Thiebuad’s complex use of composition and learn how he uses exaggerated colors to depict a variety of subject matter. Then, use acrylic paint to create your own vibrant, colorful paintings. Registration closes November 9 at 11 AM.

Want to learn more about Wayne Thiebuad’s catchy — and at times, mouthwatering — style? Try the other classes in this series: Shape and Form or Figurative Drawing.
