What's Included

Have you wondered how to be more creative with color? This workshop will help you go beyond the basic color wheel and deepen your artistic color perception. It will include exercises and experiments to better understand how colors are created, the relationships between colors, and how color placement can influence the adjacent colors or the whole canvas. Discover how to fully utilize hues, tints, gradients, value and balance colors. Explore techniques to make colors work together to be more vibrant or subtle, bold or harmonious. Students will create miniature paintings that serve as color exercises and become small art works. Materials will be provided by the Instructor.

About This Organizer

MacRostie Art Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to community growth through the arts in northern Minnesota. The MAC exists to support and advance the work of professional artists in our region and build a community that recognizes, appreciates and celebrates art. We believe that art is central to the quality of life in northern Minnesota – as it is everywhere – and that the artists who create, sell, and exhibit art play a vital role in society. Art is not a luxury, but an important engine for economic growth and community development.

 

With these values at our core, MacRostie Art Center presents exhibitions, workshops, classes, festivals, lectures, and other activities to engage the community in the arts. We support artists by providing a well-established venue for exhibition and sale of work. We work to keep the arts visible as a defining part of the community.

 

MacRostie Art Center is an active and involved member of the community that has been our home for over fifty years. We work collaboratively with social groups and agencies, educators, and other arts organizations on projects that reflect our shared objectives. It is the goal of the MAC that our services will reach all segments of the community, our efforts will enhance the status of northern Minnesota as an arts destination, and the artists who live and work here will be supported and valued.
