These classes are mixed level and are sequential; please register for Mastering Color I if you are new to the series and other levels only as appropriate based on which level(s) you have taken previously. 

Mastering Color I: Work at your own pace within a group setting doing color-related exercises only. Please bring any color exercises completed in the Colored Pencil series of classes.

Mastering Color II: Working from a live plant specimen, mix and match colors. The instructor will address the subject of harmonious color schemes and show you ways to successfully apply color schemes in your own individual work.

Mastering Color III: Work from plant specimens and focus on the challenge of mixing interesting neutrals and near neutrals without creating mud. Explore the role opacity plays in color-mixing with colored pencil, and apply the principles of warm and cool colors to add to the depth of your renderings.

Mastering Color IV: Work on techniques to enhance your individual color sense while remaining true to botanical accuracy using both exercises and working from plant specimens.

Mastering Color V: Work on experimental approaches to color usage - particularly in the area of intensity/value combinations - to further enhance your individual color sense and create a mood.
