Learn Color and Color Harmony in this 6 week oil and acrylics painting class (other mediums accepted)

Having an idea of what to paint is one thing, but translating that idea onto the canvas is accomplished through your individual technique and process. 
Join award-winning artist and popular instructor Michael Orwick for this six-week oil painting class, designed for oil and acrylics. Michael's painting classes are open to all levels of painting experience. In it we will focus on the fundamentals of good painting. We will cover the following topics: Composition, Value, Design, Choosing a Subject, Identifying and mixing accurate Warm and Cool Colors, Establishing a Focal Point as well as Tips and Do’s, and Don’ts for the Studio and Outdoor Painter to consider.  Focusing on a simplification process, the step-by-step method to creating a successful painting  The workshop will be complete with informal lectures, instructor demos, group critiques as well as individual advice. I think there are many, many ways to communicate what you want to say through a painting.
I will show you some of the techniques and processes that work for me, but more importantly, I will show you how to develop and adopt your own techniques and processes which suit you

Go beyond what you see and explore the expressive poetry of color in painting. Learn a new concept each week that is vital to helping you express yourself better and to make your colors come alive. You are able to watch demonstrations and concept breakdowns live (on Zoom) or at your convenience (recorded). Share your progress to our Private Facebook Group where we help each other grow and I’m able to give constructive feedback. Each week you’ll receive reference photos, instructions for exercises, video links to the class, and handouts pertaining to the lessons of the week.  Classes are self-paced.  Students can work through the class content on their own schedule. They are recorded and made available to all students, so participation is not required to get the full benefit of the class. Suggested supply and color list supplies when you sign up.

Let’s explore

~ how the three attributes of color–value, temperature, and chroma–are the building blocks of color mixing

~ understanding the color of light in the landscape and how it affects the color we see and mix

~ learn how to mix accurately for value, temperature, and chroma

~ learn how to mix naturalistic greens and other “problem” colors in the landscape

~ how to create color harmony

~ how to unleash the poetry possible in your art
