Event Type


We all make choices daily with regards to color. Looking for pleasing combinations in our clothing and in our surroundings, we have intuition to guide us. By learning about color we combine this intuition with knowledge, and the results can be powerful. Local artist and university instructor Diane of @dianeharperart teaches exercises in art in order to learn to see, choose, and combine color to achieve color harmonies. By exploring color schemes, we’ll see how colors affect one another. Experimentation is the key to manipulating color! This class is for the beginner as well as for the experienced artist. Leave class with a value scale of your own creation for use in all your art projects! Brown Bag Lunch or take out from an area restaurant.
