2-day workshop

April 1-2, 2023

Color mixing in oils is a basic skill set that, once grasped, will be in your toolbox for life. This workshop will introduce a taste of the Munsell Color System and the ideas behind the limited palette of Anders Zorn: the Zorn palette.
This is a hands-on workshop that incorporates learning, doing, and getting to the true colors you want.
Day 1, Saturday: Munsell Color System:
A Munsell introduction and simple explanation of its usage. Experiment with creating a neutral value scale using blacks and white on a wooden stick.
Day 2, Sunday: Zorn palette:
Create an entire palette with just 4 colors: white, yellow ochre, cadmium red, and ivory black. This is called the Zorn palette and it was created by the Swedish artist Anders Zorn. You will create the entire Zorn palette.
Students have the option to purchase both days ($190) or only one of the two days (Saturday or Sunday, $100).

Fee : $190 with membership
