For the painter, color can be friend or foe. Mastering this allusive, yet seductive artistic tool requires careful study and a lifetime of practice.

This introductory course will focus on seeing, understanding, mixing and finally painting accurate color relationships (e.g. temperature, intensity and value). Students will learn how to effectively mix high-chroma, out of the tube pigments to successfully achieve nearly any perceived/desired color relationship.  There will be demonstrations and individual attention.. Jim Himsworth is a talented artist and giving teacher who communicates clearly and effectively.. He studied with the late Nelson Shanks at The University of the Arts and Studio Incamminati which influenced his approach to seeing and mixing color.
