Colour Mixing Art Class

This class will show you how to mix color and create three dimensional form using the sphere. You will also take a quick look at value and you will be shown the tools you need to properly read the value in your subjects.

You will look at how light affects color including color temperature and learn how to mix the dark areas of your paintings so that the light areas will appear brighter and more vibrant. Finally, you will learn color mixing strategies to help you mix the light colors on your palette as well as how to make realistic shadows for your subjects

Rose Tanner is an award-winning artist who loves the outdoors and studying birds. She is dedicated to portraying her subjects using traditional oil painting techniques, but she believes it’s her attention to their inner being that gives them their lifelike quality in her paintings. She travels widely for her subjects and is active in supporting endangered birds and their habitat.


Students are expected to provide their own supplies in order to participate.
