COVID19 and Classes at Wet Paint

In line with recommendations from the Minnesota Department of Health that were announced today, Wet Paint will be postponing/rescheduling all classes and events that were originally to take place in the next few weeks…including this class. We will be coordinating new dates with our instructors and notifying affected participants. If you are interested in taking this class, please call the store to let us know and we’ll inform you of the new date when it is set.

Sunday, March 29th  1-5pm

Fee: $72

In this 4-hour workshop, participants will explore relationships between the three dimensions of color – Hue, Value, and Chroma. This introduction (or review) is designed to develop confidence in the use of color, and to familiarize participants with the basics of color theory.

While we will use water-based media for the exercises, the information is applicable to all media.

Prerequisites: NONE. This workshop is very appropriate for first time creators as well as those with previous experience. Each will benefit from individual attention and guidance.

An email with supply list and details will be sent to registrants prior to the class.


Instructor Bio

Monica Fogg is an artist (watercolor, encaustic, acrylic, woodcut, and lithography) and designer or fabricator (Prince, Lorie Line, Disney, Guthrie Theater, Minnesota History Center and others). She has taught courses in watercolor, drawing, painting, color theory, design, visual studies and art history. She currently teaches in the College of Design at the University of Minnesota.

“My personal work is informed and inspired by forms found in nature. I consider and experience the foundations of the earth as symbolic of the ‘grounding’ of spirit. Representation is distilled to form, movement, essence. The process is a dance between concept and emotion.”
