Color us excited to have local painter and skilled colorist Mia Cross leading this most vibrant of workshops. Students will follow an engaging process on their colorful course, first painting from observation, and then working with Mia to name and mix the colors seen in their own art. Through this process participants will learn to identify and recreate a full spectrum of shades, including primary and tertiary colors. Mia's own paintings will be on hand as (colorful) inspiration.
