How do artists use color to create atmosphere, mood, and depth? How can one start with three colors and end up with an infinite number? How can a color look one way over here and another way over there? This class will include examinations of color relationships and how colors affect the viewer and the viewer’s perception of the colors themselves. Working in the color medium the student feels most comfortable using (such as oil pastels, oil or acrylic paint, gouache), we will learn how to choose colors, mix colors, and use color to represent light, shadow, and space, and to convey emotions. This class will help students use color effectively to enhance the visual impact of their work. The fee is $195 plus materials list provided upon registration.
Wednesday is a painter and teacher with more than 30 years experience. With a BA from Smith College and an MFA from James Madison University, she is one of the artists who initiated and completed the mural “The History of Women in Northampton from 1680-1980”. She has exhibited widely and has works in numerous private collections throughout the United States. She believes that the role of the teacher is to foster, stimulate, and facilitate investigation and discovery by sharing not only knowledge, but also the excitement of learning.
