OPEN YOUR EYES:
THE POWER OF COLOR AWARENESS
A different approach to color...
This class is about you and how you experience color. It's about opening our senses and our minds to understand how color affects our perception, our reality, and our creativity. While you may have studied the technical aspects of color, this course offers a different approach - one that is personal, instinctive and intuitive. It is designed to enhance your sensory awareness so you can work more confidently with color and make your best work.
How would your art evolve it you could...?
Wipe the dust off the lens of your mind and become more sensitive to color
Get in touch with your senses to connect with the present moment
Think about color in new ways and enhance your creativity
Train your instincts and give yourself more freedom with color
Have color working for you (not against you) in your art
Develop your authentic palette
Color can be frustrating when what we see on the canvas does not align with our vision or purpose. This can happen when we are too analytical in our use of color. Join me to explore color awareness techniques that will help you develop a more personal and intuitive palette that serves your mission as an artist.
Color is important - practice it!
There are 3 main ways you communicate as a painter - color, line, and form. You probably practice line and form through sketching or composition studies, etc... How do you practice color? And how often? This class will give you ways to practice color that spark creativity and inspiration.
