Have you been struggling with controlling color? Do you mix a lot of mud? Well, no more! This class will have you painting with color confidence. Using a simple still life as a reference, learn to work with the color wheel to lighten and darken your colors, find out why values are so important, and more. These color mixing lessons will be taught by demos and then students will use their new knowledge in class with a still set up. Please touch base with Dawn ( if you have questions. Bring a sack lunch. Min. 4, max. 10.
