Class Description
Let’s start by saying that color is invigorating. It is tool that has the power to do no less than lift our spirits and make us happy.  If you already feel this way about color — or you’ve always been shy about it and wish to — this is the class for you!

We will start the week by working in our sketchbooks on line drawings that will easily turn into bright, rich watercolors. We’ll draw from fresh flowers…



… and create still lifes from items around your house: stilllife2

Next, we’ll switch to acrylics and construct some simple, bold, meaningful, colorful decorative paintings! We’ll work from fresh vegetables…


… and then more abstractly with pixels and “blobs”:pixelpainting yellowtrio

Finally — and as a bonus lesson to really celebrate color in our lives — we’ll build a fabulous flower mobile for your studio from re-used materials including scarves, yarn, and faux-flowers:
