One day Pastel Color & Energy Workshop

Whether you are brand new or have been painting for years everyone can learn something new when it comes to working with color. Color is the number one way to evoke emotion in a work of art. How can you express yourself more successfully with color and create art with high energy? Come find out.

May 16, 2018 10 am – 4 pm $150 (includes samples from sponsors of Richichi workshops).

Start with the color wheel

Before arriving at the class, be familiar with the layout of the basic color wheel seen at the bottom of the page. If you have never made a color wheel, you’ll have your chance to select this exercise to tackle.  If you already know the color wheel inside and out, your assignments will be more advanced. Everyone will learn something new in this workshop.

Color intimidates many people. We’ll break it down and make it less daunting.

What colors are you drawn to? How do you mix colors to get them to do what you want them to do? How do you work with prismatic, pure colors and create neutrals so that the colors you want to stand out sing? What about creating a high energy  work of art? Do you know how to not go over the top? There is so much about color to learn. You will take a journey into color theory and come out the other side smiling as your color confidence grows.


Learn from nature

After we work in the studio blending, mixing and selecting color schemes, you will learn how colors change depending on the time of day, temperature of the light and whether in the light or in the shadows. Intermediate to advanced? Personalized attention at your easel to guide you and advance

Mini Lessons reap huge rewards

Each mini lesson is specifically prepared to upgrade your color knowledge so you drive away understanding color challenges better than ever. You will receive specific assignments based on your level of experience. You will receive instruction tailored for your specific needs. Mixing? Seeing color? Creating harmony? Understanding warm and cool colors? After instruction, select the assignment right for you. You know what you need more help with.
