Do you like working with paint and exploring color? Join us as we take a deep dive into color theory, learning how to create custom colors and how to apply color with a variety of techniques. Students will use acrylics and watercolor paints to create everything from teeny tiny paintings to larger scale canvas art to hang on their walls. We will also engage in critique discussions, take a field trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art, meet local artists, and conduct virtual visits to learn more about historical painters.
