A Brush with Color and Light with Christine Camilleri
Medium: All Media
Level: All Levels
Location: Studio
Status: Open For Enrollment
Instructor's Website: https://www.christinecamilleri.com/

Imagine a beautiful painting with gestures of color and light; a painting that expresses your power as an artist with clarity and statement. Most artists are hesitant to explore the concepts of color and light in their paintings and so they risk having a flat, uninteresting, timid work that they are disappointed in without understanding why. This workshop will take you and your work to a new level no matter where you are starting from.

You will learn about concepts you have heard about but have not been able to put into your paintings — until now. Such as:

  • how do I bring bolder color into my work?
  • how are grays and chromatic black related to bringing out color?
  • what is color harmony and how do I use it in my paintings?
  • how do I fill my paintings with eye catching light?
  • if form and shadows are part of light how can I use that knowledge?
  • how do I choose the best lighting for my subject?
  • how can I use dramatic lighting to best effect?
  • is there a way to create a sky that enhances my landscape?
  • is there a way to connect what I see in my head with what I’m painting?
  • how can I prevent my painting from going sideways before it’s too late?

Many students have noted Christine’s unique style of teaching (grounded in adult learning principles) which include:  demonstrations with talking points, presentations using Powerpoint, group discussion, private thinking, experiential learning, fun exercises she’s designed to teach concepts and one on one coaching and encouragement will tease out your own best way to learn and make this an exceptional week. Christine’s relaxed style will ensure you feel comfortable asking for help. It’s also not all work—you will be having laughs, sharing ideas, using music to relax and paint and other fun ways to tap our creative selves.

Get ready for a day to day structure that will enhance and build on what we will learn each day; principles will be repeated until they form part of your body of knowledge and you will begin to effortlessly translate them into your paintings.

Christine’s goal is that by the end of the week your confidence and skill set will be transformed into creating paintings filled with color and light.

 

Student Feedback

“It beyond exceeded my expectations. Christine taught basic comp and color wheel in a way I’ve never experienced in art school or all the classes and workshops I’ve taken. I left feeling like I’ve turned a corner into a new world of art.”
