Color Theory Workshop!

Color Theory Workshop with Aleta Gudelski
Sunday, March 6th from 2-4pm

Explore the physical properties of color with artist and teacher Aleta Gudelski at a Color Theory Workshop at Left Bank Gallery Essex on Sunday, March 6th from 2-4pm. For beginners and advanced artists, this crash course will cover a broad spectrum of basic color mixing techniques and tricks of the trade. Aleta will demonstrate a variety of color mixing methods in watercolor and acrylic. Attendees will mix paint to explore hue, value, intensity and temperature. Whether you paint landscapes, still lifes, or portraits, this informative lesson will teach you how to master warm and cool primaries, neutral and chromatic greys, and flesh tones in order to create sophisticated and rich palettes. The workshop will cover color relativity and optical color mixing. Learn how the Impressionists juxtaposed color to create stunning optical effects. Utilize the color wheel to maximize the visual impact of your paintings by selecting the perfect color scheme to suit your compositions. Uncover strategies to brighten up your canvas and avoid mixing “mud”.
