"WHAT DO YOU SEE?"
SARA BETH FAIR - FINE ART
NEW WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT
FRIDAY, JULY 9, 2010
9:00 - 4:00
"Seek the strongest color effect possible, the content is of no importance." Henri Matisse
"Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment." Claude Monet
"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way--things I had no words for." Georgia O' Keefe
"Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? no. Just as one can never learn how to paint." Pablo Picasso
Join me as we learn how to: mix colors, take color ques from nature, make our colors sing, harmonize, mix grays and their importance, use color in design, use color to portray mood, personality and emotion, and use color to show perspective.
I will break this down in simple terms to help you get the most from color in your painting and from color in your life.
You will recieve a COLOR WORKBOOK with HANDOUTS. Also, snacks, water, and coffee.
