2-Day Workshop with Amanda Lovett - Essentials of Color

The best way to learn a difficult subject is to break it down into its simplest form. Color theory can become as simple as one, two, three. Using a three color palette, we will spend two days working through fun and interesting painting exercises that will help strengthen your understanding of color mixing, creating mood, color schemes and much more. The workshop will end by applying what you learn to your own painting!

Utilizing instruction, demos and hands-on painting, this workshop is kept small enough to ensure plenty of one-on-one time with the instructor. Acrylic painters are welcome!
