Wish Upon a Star with Gabriel Lehman September 26 - 30, 2022

about this workshop

In this lighthearted and upbeat class, students will start with a dark 24” x 30″ canvas so they can work dark to light, shaping clouds and exploring hidden light sources to create a magical nighttime scene. Keeping topics fun, Gabriel will show students time-saving techniques and a practical approach to painting, using colors straight from the bottle to simplify the process and ensure a successful painting. No painting experience is required. Gabriel will begin with color theory and a review of the color wheel, study of clouds, and how to see color and light. Once paintings are complete, students will learn how to apply professional hanging gear to their piece and how to photograph the work for reproduction.
