Mastering Color

Workshop with Amy Funderburk

Saturday March 28, 11 AM - 6 PM

Sunday March 29, 1 - 4 PM

Artists On Liberty Building

Winston-Salem, NC

Open to all skill levels and media. Class size is limited to allow for plenty of one-on-one instruction time, so please reserve your place today! Registration deadline: Saturday, March 21st.

Course Description. Does your heart sing when you see an array of new pigments in every color of the rainbow? Do you get overwhelmed by the choices, or stumped when it comes to using them effectively? Whether you are just getting your feet wet with your media, or if you are a seasoned professional who wants more information about the nuances of that most emotionally evocative of elements, this is the perfect workshop experience for you! Learn how colors affect each other as well as the viewer's perception. Train your eye to discern subtle differences in hue, and learn to evoke whatever emotional response you wish through your compositional color choices. If you have taken my workshop Exploring Color in the past, with Mastering Color you'll find exciting, newly updated information. Participants may work in any media in which they feel well versed. We will begin the first day with a lecture component and an exploration of art history, followed by hands-on exercises and projects tailored to your experience level. 

You will be given a Suggested Materials List and emailed a set of handouts upon registration. Participants using any media are welcome, including photographers with laptops and photo editing software.

To Register. Contact me for further details and to register by Saturday, March 21st. Accepted payment methods include cash, check or credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover, or American Express). Pay in advance and get the special inaugural studio workshop rate of only $100! For registered participants paying after March 21st, the cost is $125. 




"I was given the inspiration and freedom to abstract the colors of the landscape in order to express my emotional response to it. Amy’s individual attention and advice was invaluable to me as I painted."

"I have waited 20 years to hear what you had to say.... What you covered in your class should be mandatory for every art student."
