The Art in Painting: Learning to See - A Workshop  

In this hands-on workshop, learn to observe and analyze the basic structure of all forms by drawing and painting on canvas. We will use still-life, photography, examples from old masters, and when possible, work outdoors. Learn to mix primary colors and their complementaries to achieve variations in values, the function of volumes and patterns, and create an original dynamic painting.
