2018 Winter Workshops

Color Bootcamp - A Two Day Intensive (limit 12 students)
Nov. 30th - Dec. 1st
9:30 am to 5:30 pm (1 hour lunch break)
Instructor: Julie Beck
Price: $290

Who doesn’t love color?!?! This workshop is a dive into the world of chroma (and hue and value!). Do you want a reliable strategy for getting accurate colors? Do you want to make your painting life easier? Of course you do! Join us as we fly through color space, develop color mixing strategies, and create amazing color studies. Day 1 we will discuss some technical info about color, paint, and mixing. Then we will get down and dirty and do some color matching from reference and from life. Day two we will use what we learned from day 1 to work on a color study or two.

By far the best workshop I have ever taken. Christina’s instruction was incredibly clear and the structure of the course was well thought out. The atmosphere was positive and helpful. I think each student was amazed by the work they created.

The class was amazing. Thank you very much. You are such a generous teacher, sharing a wealth of information with us. The class was an excellent introduction to many important things to think about — things that I wish I knew in my past attempts to work in oils.
