Virtual: The Sexy World of Color! Painting Workshop with Marc Anderson

Saturday & Sunday, February 27, 28:  9-11 am

In this workshop, we will discuss the fun, mysterious, and sometimes sexy world of color and how to harness the power of color in your paintings! Sounds risqué, right? But you got this! You will learn the basics of color such as color mixing AND the more intermediate ideas of color, including temperature, value, hue and saturation. All 2-D color media are welcome, including oils, acrylics, watercolor, pastels and gouache. Marc will focus on painting fundamentals within drawing, composition, materials and more. Each session will begin with a 30 minute lecture and slide presentation followed by a 90 minute demonstration by the instructor. Students are encouraged to ask questions during the lecture or demonstration. Students will receive digital images to work from. Students will then be given a homework assignment of creating one painting at the end of each session. These paintings should be emailed to Marc prior to the next class session. Subsequent class sessions will begin with a 15-30 minute discussion and critique of the students’ paintings. This will be followed by another 90 minute demonstration. A supply list is available online.

Virtual Class Fee: $150 CCC Members / $180 Non-Members
