In this one-time class, students will learn how to use black and white paints to create a monochromatic scale. Then, they'll add color to learn how to darken and lighten paints as they need to.

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn how to mix black and white paints in order to create different shades of grey. This knowledge will then be applied to creating a single-color scale, as well.
Art is a lifelong passion, and my journey with art started in middle school. I have worked in many different media, but my favorites are sketching, drawing, and photography. I’ve been keeping sketchbooks for nearly 20 years, and they’ve helped me document my journey with art, as well as important milestones in my life. I want to help learners find their artistic passion and help them do the same.
Learners will need the following to participate in this class: - A pencil - A jar or mug of water - A paintbrush no larger than 1/2" - Titanium White and Mars Black acrylic paint, as well as a color of the learner's choice (if you have trouble finding these, message me - I'd be more than happy to help) - A palette - A heavyweight paper pad, or a canvas pad
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
