About the Class:
In this six-session class, you will have fun while learning the properties of color and color mixing needed to create bright, luminous paintings. Patrice will teach the Hide-N-Seek painting technique of using texture to create under-paintings that she uses to create her paintings. You will learn the art of negative painting to find your subject matter hiding amid the background. This includes painting where the subject is not, as well as softening edges, and providing contrast. This process works for all genres. Best of all you will learn to see the world through the eyes of an artist, and to ask questions that will help you to unlock the messages within your paintings. Be amazed by the vistas opening up before you and within you.
