Do you want to write? With a little help, you can! In 6 weeks, you’ll produce many short pieces you have yet to imagine: no excuses, no inner dialogue, no internal editor, no rationalizations. One day prior to class, you will receive a prompt: a word, image, or phrase. You will draft a piece based on the prompt and join your fellow writers to share what you’ve written. Trust the process. Be amazed. You and your classmates have wondrous stories to tell when prompted.
Presented via Zoom, this course will help you develop ways to produce the color you are seeking within your artwork. You will also learn how to intensify or subdue color vibrancy and see how it affects the mood of your finished painting. You will create a color wheel, make a value chart, and put your newfound knowledge to work producing artwork with a limited palette. A short supply list is available when you register.
