In this three-hour class, adult students of all abilities will learn how to control color mixing and use color schemes effectively in realistic and abstract paintings. Students will be introduced to color theory, explore and experiment with color, and develop an understanding of the relationships between colors in a work of art. They will build confidence and apply new knowledge while creating a finished painting using acrylic paint on canvas. Adults who participated in our art classes last year will bring new insights and find new challenges in this year’s series of programs. Exhibition Focus: Permanent Collections, Modernism, and Contemporary Art.
Individualized attention, small classes, frequent gallery tours, and master teachers are hallmarks of the Michener Art Museum’s exceptional arts programs.
