COLOR & LIGHT - Course Description
Color and Light is investigated through application in various medias. beginning with the setting up of palettes, mixing mechanics, Color Theory, and sustained painting working from reference images. Subject matter includes both objective and nonobjective painting. Through carefully structured sequences in layering artists are introduced to basic two dimensional concepts.
The goal of COLOR & LIGHT in OIL, ACRYLIC and MIXED MEDIA is for each artist to explore the nature and properties of COLOR and LIGHT in relation to the layering of PAINT and GLAZES. Artists are challenged to explore line, shape, form, color, texture and scale as elements of a powerful and unlimited visual language.
“Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.” Wassily Kandinsky
“If you're an artist and don't understand color, you're like a traveler who left your luggage at home. Sooner or later you'll have to go back and get it if you want to get very far.”
ART FOR SELF-DISCOVERY We have discovered that the delight of creative development through painting strengthens self-confidence, sharpens awareness and significantly improves problem solving abilities.
Did you know.....that when you are painting, you are in perfect alignment with your true self, and while you're in alignment, it only takes 68 seconds of thought to manifest a desire? What this means is any dreams you are hoping for outside of class will manifest into your reality.
Just think about what you can accomplish while you're painting during the 2-3 hours you invest in yourself with us.
