Art Making | Watercolors: Focus on Color Theory


Art Making | Watercolors: Focus on Color Theory

Thursday, July 8, 2021 @ 8:00 pm

The Art Museum is partnering with the Arts Council of Princeton to provide free online watercolor classes. Weekly classes are taught by artist-instructor Barbara DiLorenzo over Zoom. With an emphasis on color mixing and brushwork, each week’s lesson will be inspired by works in the Museum’s collections.

Transitioning from grayscale to color can be a challenge for artists. In this class we will explore color theory, experimenting with combinations of colors that work well together due to the structure of color schemes.
