Spring/Summer Classes for Adults

Spring Classes March–April–May

Exploring the Visual Complementswith Vera Dickerson (watermedia)
6 classes: Tuesdays, March 22–April 26 (Same class on Thursdays March 24–April 28) • 1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. • $175
Select your subject and explore the beauty of color relations adjusted to pairs of visual complements. This is slightly different from the color wheel pairs of colors and creates the best of “side by side” colors in your paintings. Regardless of how light or dark the colors may be, we can make the most of learning these choices and mixtures to make memorable art. Use form at left to contact Vera with questions.register_button

Creating Atmospheric Spaceswith Vera Dickerson (acrylic)
3 classes: Monday–Wednesday, July 25–27 • 9:00 a.m.–Noon • $90
Whether painting a spacious landscape or working on a smaller still life space (our subject for this class), there are means with which we can create a visual space on the flat surface of a canvas. We will discuss atmospheric perspective in a shallow space and layer an interesting background space before painting volumetric objects on it.
