“All the Colors of the Rainbow” by Dana Zier
This 5 lesson class is for the students wanting to learn about color, the basic primaries through the complex tertiaries, in a fun, step-by-step method. The class will simplify subjects to practice the lessons – fruit, glass, flowers, and faces.
Much of color theory has to do with the properties of light, so an added benefit to the class will be increased knowledge of light and shadow. This concept will come naturally, after learning why the artist mixes colors the way they do.
The class will also see examples of Classical, Impressionist, and Expressionist use of light in historic paintings.
The class will use acrylic paint on canvas and board. Practices will be done on cardboard.
Dana Zier is a full-time artist and gallery owner. She has taught 15 year in the university system, and has been a self-employed artist for many years. Her work can be seen at the Zier Gallery in Bridger, MT and the Depot Gallery in Red Lodge, MT.
