Dare Arts Council Announces Color Theory Workshop

Posted By on February 1, 2016

You are invited to join Dare County Arts Council for a fantastic 2-Day Color Theory Workshop with artist Adele Castillo on February 20 & 21, 2016. In this intensive workshop, students will begin by creating color wheels from the pigments they own, then explore color theory as we know it and compare it to the reality of how pigment actually works. E

ach student will use a photo reference of their choosing and create several paintings using various palette options to see how color choices affect what we are trying to portray. Included in this conversation will be information about hue, value and chroma, plus ways to use the color wheel to organize color families when deciding how to tweak a painting.

This two-day workshop using acrylic paint is appropriate for beginners or advanced students. Other media than acrylic may be used. Class will meet from 9am – 4pm each day at Dare County Arts Council, 300 Queen Elizabeth Avenue in downtown Manteo. Tuition is only $195 for DCAC members or $225 for nonmembers, ages 16 and up. Teacher Renewal Credit is available.

Instructor Adele Castillo is a graduate of Old Dominion University, with a B.S. in Art Education and has taken a number of advanced classes as well as workshops to continue honing her skills in painting. She left her teaching career with Virginia Beach Schools after 19 years to spend more time creating. This also allowed her to begin teaching art to adult students. Adele currently maintains a working studio and classroom in Crossroads Art Center. To see more of her work, visit http://adelecastillo.com.
