Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about color. Not sure this Workshop is for you??? Listen to what student Kelsey Zink said about her experience:
“Imagine Dorothy on her farm in Kansas. You could easily illustrate it with smooth graphite, rich charcoal, soft pastel. I enjoyed learning to work with all of these mediums, but it wasn’t long before I wanted more. What artist doesn’t long to go beyond the grayscale prairie and plunge into the exciting realm of the brilliant, colorful Oz?
I’m a Graphic Designer. I know how color works. I’d already taken color theory in college, so all I had to do was grab my bright tubes of acrylic paint and plunge in, right? Wrong! I soon discovered my textbook knowledge helped little in practical application when actually working with color. And soon, instead of the Emerald City, all I had really been successful in illustrating was the color pallet of a swamp.
You know, familiar Kansas wasn’t so bad. At least I know how to shade the landscape there…maybe I should just do a character study on barns. Time to click my slippers and close my eyes – “There’s no place like home.’
And then Audrey offered a course, “Color Theory I”. I cringed, and signed up, pretending it didn’t scare me.
Audrey teaches a concise, hands-on, nuts and bolts course. It wasn’t easy, but she was patient and soon the light-bulb of understanding was switching on for me.
Audrey was able to clear the mystery of color: value, temperature, intensity – all the keys to successful color mixing. And that was just the beginning! This course was an essential springboard to working with color. It has enabled me to pursue working in colored pencil, pastel, acrylic and mixed media pieces that have been so much fun to create. The reference book she provides has been a continual resource as I continue on the journey down the yellow brick road!”
