Fill your paintings with light, color and joy learning how to SEE, MIX, and EXPRESS COLOR seamlessly. Join Sara Beth and learn the secrets of color and light by creating color charts to take home and use in your classroom; creating several beautiful studies learning how to apply the secrets; and finally completing a beautiful still life painting.

Sara Beth has been painting for 17 years. In addition, she has a Ph.D. in optics and hence a  technical as well as artistic understanding of  light  and color.  She has taught multiple classes  around the  country  and  exhibited  in  galleries  throughout  the  southeast. Her artistic training  has  come  from  independent  studies  of  the  masters,  plein air  painting  of  nature,  along  with  tutelage  from  contemporary  masters. She spent three years  studying  with  Murat  Kaboulov, a  Russian  impressionist,  along  with  several  students  of  the  great  Russian  artist  Sergei  Bongart. Her style reflects her love for the Russian Impressionists use of color and large  brushwork. For more information, visit sarabethfair.com.
