- Color Connections with Lisa Regopoulos
February 9, 2019
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Intuitive color choices – unleash your creativity in this fun and relaxing pastel workshop with a focus on color. Learn how to go beyond the conventional interpretations of color and create a painting that is unique to you. To build emotion into your painting, you need to trigger a reaction from the viewer, and this workshop will show you how to choose the right color to get that message across. There will be specific exercises to help you think out of the box and to use your own color intuition. The workshop will begin with a demonstration and then the students will participate in the color exercise before settling in on their pastel painting for the day. Bring an iPad, or photos as reference for what you would like to create that day.
