If drawing is the infrastructure, color is the magic. Combining the two is the key to creating a work of art. This course provides the tools to transcribe a perceptual experience in color to a piece of paper. Working media will include color pencils, watercolor and gouache. The emphasis will be on observation from nature and each class is designed to pose a different challenge: from color mixing and color relationship to reflection, tonal development, texture, design, and composition. Students will be instructed according to their personal needs and skill level. Course includes lecutres, group critiques, and individual demonstrations. Individual projects are encouraged.
