Any medium may be used in this workshop. This workshop approaches color in an intuitive and hands-on way. Sandra will introduce a series of simple exercises to learn from. We will then focus on the fundamentals of color theory by exploring the different groups of color that make up the twelve segments of our basic color wheel. The goal is learning to use the color wheel simply and efficiently to control your painting. Finally, Sandra will guide you through making better color selections for the desired effect and feeling that you wish to see in your work. Click here to read all the details.
