Color: Painting Beyond Your Assumptions (10weeks/Online)
Instructor: Erin Raedeke
January 26-March 30
Tuesdays, 10 am - 1 pm EST
This class will help you to push past your color assumptions and get to what is really needed to create sensitivity and nuance in a painting. Getting there requires going beyond the first glance, taking a second look, opening up the palette and its possibilities, and opening yourself up to discovery. Using color, you will develop a strong, effective voice without the need to shout too loudly. You’ll be encouraged to embrace imperfection, find meaning in inaccuracies, and collaborate with your painting rather than control it.
Students may work from still life, self-portrait or other subjects during the term. Oil paint or acrylic are the preferred mediums. Erin’s demos will be with oil paint. Strategies in color mixing and relationships will be introduced, and finding personal palettes that speak to your experience will be emphasized.
Who is this class for: This class is most ideal for those with some previous basic life drawing and painting skills. It will provide tools and language for deepening understanding of the crucial role of color in painting. This call will be taught through Zoom.
