Do you have a color "strategy" before you start a painting, or do you simply hope the color will work out in the end? Have you ever wished you had more freedom with color?  

Color is one of the most important elements in the success of your painting.  Many painters feel bound by the colors they see, which can lead to predictable paintings that lack drama, no matter how well they are painted. It's important to learn how to harness the power of color and use it to communicate your artistic vision.

In this 3 hour workshop,  learn how "less is more" in your palette for good color harmony, and learn to work with the colors of your choice.

Patti Mollica, author of "Color Theory, an Essential Guide to Color" will be teaching the strategy behind working with color schemes and pushing color choices to the next level. If you are ready to embark upon new level of color exploration, don't miss this workshop! Suitable for all levels and media - acrylic, oils, pastel, watercolor, etc.
