Color Confidence

Color is a powerful tool. In this intensive workshop we’ll explore color through a series of hands-on exercises to reveal not only the basics of color theory but also how to integrate color into your chosen medium. And while color theory is important, it only begins the conversation, because how you apply color is what’s critical to successful work. You will leave the workshop with greater confidence navigating the language and use of color which, in turn, will expand your artistic voice. All levels. Printmaking studio.
