Intensive Painting/Color based on Dr. Betty Edwards’ Color: A course in mastering the art of color mixing
Saturday – Monday, September 28 –30, 2019
9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Fee: $975 for members or non-members

Betty Edwards and Brian Bomeisler have designed a practical three-day course in color as the next step and follow-up to Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. This course is suitable for novices in color as well as more experienced artists who may be using color without a clear understanding or knowledge of color theory. Hands-on exercises focus on how to use color theory to achieve harmonious color, and how to see and efficiently mix specific desired hues. Brief lectures focus on traditional color attributes such as hue, value, intensity and various visual perceptual and psychological aspects of color. Students will work on still life paintings utilizing the theory and techniques they learn during the workshop. For this workshop, we work with acrylic paints because of their versatility, but the techniques can be applied to any painting mediums, oil paint, watercolor, pastel or colored pencils. A portfolio of painting materials included.
