Foundation Painting

Instructor: Tania Karpowitz

Beginning/Intermediate
This is a class about color: how its intensity, temperature, and value create space. The understanding of color changes depending on its visual context. Students progress through a series of projects with still life. Starting with limited palettes that do not mimic the still life projects, students must understand the relationships they see and interpret them. As the class advances, students expand to a full palette. The class is great for beginners, who gain the core ideas of color at the start, and a helpful reminder for more advanced students. Students will meet exercises at their individual level.

This class is presented on Zoom.

A kit of supplies is available for purchase online through The Art League’s website, and can be shipped for a fee, or picked up curbside.
