Introduction to Painting & Color Theory class

Tuesdays, March 6 - April 10 (5 sessions)

10:30 am - 12: 30 pm  Instructor: Susan White    $100

Master painters know that with every painting there is more to learn about color. We’ll begin simple with the basics, then move towards a more complex understanding that reveals how exciting color study can be! Using acrylic and watercolor, we’ll have fun first getting comfortable with basic painting techniques. Then we'll move through some color study exercises that we can later use in our own individual paintings, on paper, canvas, and board. Students will have much freedom in choosing their own topics for painting, and are encouraged to bring in any independent work for feedback. Previous painting experience helpful but not required.

WORKSHOPS:

NUNO FELTED SCARFLETTE WORKSHOP

Sunday, January 21

2:00 pm - 6:00 pm  Instructor: Stacy Gates    $60

Nuno Felting is  a wet felting technique that combines a sheer cotton or silk fabric  base with wool fibers. Depending on what fibers are used - different types of wool roving, silk fibers & hankies, yarns - and how many layers are applied, one can build up color, texture and other design elements in a  finished fabric. We will create a beautiful short scarf (scarflette) in this workshop as you learn about the fundamentals and beauty of nuno felting. Please wear comfortable shoes as you will be standing for most of this workshop.You must bring your own supplies or buy a materials kit $15

Experience the thrill of the"bloom" and blend for yourself in this hands on workshop for first time users.  Stacy will introduce you to a brushless process in which inks are applied directly from bottle to paper, then blended and moved using plastic straws, paper towels, breeze, and gravity. The process is addictive, and the outcome is limitless! We will explore the inks on a variety of surfaces including ceramic tile, yupo paper, glass and shrinky dinks!
