We come inside this time of year. Capture the mood of interior life whether your inspiration is the quality of light itself, or the figures, objects and spaces it illuminates. Learn to see the structure of light and shadow, perspective and depth. Learn a three-layer/four-value approach to value studies and color. Build confidence as you explore pigment characteristics, wet-into-wet mingling, transparent layering, intentional lost and found edges, and lively brushwork through instructor demos, guided exercises and individualized feedback. All levels welcome. Materials list available in store or after registration.
