Color and Design
Learn to control the flow and application of paint as well as the essentials of color-mixing and creating color harmony. You'll develop your understanding of value, color temperature, and simultaneous contrast through a series of class exercises. Students will execute a series of small designs based on limited palettes in gouache (water-based or acrylic).
