Even the most seasoned painters at times feel frustrated with their understanding of color. In this workshop, Takeyce will review basic color theory and how to use that knowledge to create harmonious works on art in oil or pastels. We will create a color wheel, and color mixing chart. Instructor demonstrations, critiques and one-on-one guidance will be provided. All mediums welcome. A Supply List will be provided upon registration and supplies are not included in the cost of the class/workshop.

Winter scenes can be some of the most beautiful paintings, but can also be one of the trickiest color compositions to master. Students participating in this one-day workshop will explore the techniques often used in painting a winter scene. The emphasis of this workshop will be on techniques using soft neutral hues, introducing and using appropriate color to develop engaging winter compositions. A complete supply list can be found on our website. This workshop is designed for students of all levels and all media. Takeyce will be working with pastels or oil paint to provide demos, and students will be provided with one-on-one feedback, reference material, and assignments to practice the techniques learned at home. There will also be a critique at the end of class to review the work completed.

This workshop aims to help students transform their photographic reference to create a unique work of art that allows the expression of your artistic license. We will review methods of capturing, composing, and editing images. We will also discuss possible pitfalls from “copying” photos, and how to avoid them.

Here’s what my students are saying about my workshops:

We had such a good time yesterday. I am still thinking and engaged with “pastels” this morning. Just saying the workshop has wonderful “spillover” effects. You’re a fine teacher, and I appreciate so much your preparations, demonstrations and instruction. All are gentle and open. You create an ideal environment for creative expression.

– Dawn, Artist

Takeyce was delightful…….organized, informative, two demos given , a wonderful teacher and we all went home with two completed paintings each. So glad I am signed up for her two upcoming classes…….please keep her coming back!!
– Sally Higgins, Artist

“I just wanted to say how very much I enjoyed the workshop Takeyce gave on color theory last weekend. She is a very generous teacher, sharing skills and techniques so articulately. I love her. We had a good group of artists of different levels. The space was pleasant and the time sped by. I got a lot out of this class, but more importantly, I feel inspired to do more art myself. So glad I signed up!”

— Susan Weber
