Description:  Color tells stories and shares emotion in ways words can’t. In our time together, I’ll help you discover the beauty of each color and the stories they are ready to help you share through your art. We’ll begin by learning how to build limited color palettes that travel well and push you to figure out how to create your own beautiful colors. Once we have built our palettes, we’ll learn to mix a plethora of colors with a series of simple questions and adjustments. Next, we’ll work on some exercises that will reveal the importance of composition in storytelling - painting different kinds of watercolor washes with an emphasis on layering techniques and mark-making. We’ll conclude our time together with a pretty give-it-a-spin illustration project that includes a fancy globe filled with color, imagination and a few of your favorite things tucked inside!

Techniques/skills/projects included are: creating and documenting limited color palettes |color confidence-building | watercolor layering studies | start small-finish big composition practice | mechanical pencil mark-making project | give-it-a-spin illustration project
