 "Unlocking The Secrets Of Color" online,  beginning June 6.
Color is one of the most immediate and emotionally affecting elements in visual art, packed with symbolic and cultural associations, personal meaning, and expressive potential.  In this workshop we will explore color through hands on exercises, learning how to mix them, and how they interact and relate to one another, and how they work in composition. Read the full description here. 

"Exploring the Self-Portrait" online, starting June 6.  
Have you ever thought about creating self-portraits but recoiled in fear of the idea?  We will explore the self-portrait through contour drawing, painting, and collage, and generally use it as an anchor for discovering the expressive potential of our materials and imaginations.
