The Art in Painting: Learning to See - A Workshop  

In this workshop, you will learn to analyze the basic structure of all art forms and how they relate to each other. Additionally, you will learn to mix primary colors and their complementaries for contrasts in tone and values. We will use still-life, old Master paintings, and photographs as references. Learn how colors and forms activate pictorial space to create your own dynamic composition.
