Calaveras Artist, Libby Fife, teaches “Split Primary” Six Color Mixing Chart for Watercolors

Calaveras Arts Council is now offering affordable art classes at the Gallery Store location at 22 N. Main Street in San Andreas. Local Calaveras artist, Libby Fife, is teaching a beginning art class on how to create a color wheel. In this one day class, you will learn to make a version of a “split” primary color chart that uses both a “cool” to “warm” version of each of the three primary colors in a your watercolor kit. You will learn how to mix a variety of primary and secondary colors as well as some lovely grays and browns (neutrals). This class is focused on the concept of creating a limited palette to use as a guide in painting or sketching. Limited palettes can help to unify your sketches and teach you about your paint properties, and are a useful compositional tool. They are great for beginning painters on the go too because there is less to carry....

Fife is offering classes on Monday, October 13, Tuesday, October 21 and 28 for $15.00 each. Classes are held at the Calaveras Art Council’s office in San Andreas. Seating is limited so call 754-1774 in order to reserve your space.

If you are interested in the class, contact the Calaveras Arts Council by calling 209-754-1774 and go online at www.calaverasarts to get more information about art supplies required for the class, where to shop, and class syllabus.

Oh! How I wish I could be there. So few painters share the basics of elementals like color. Most "art" teachers stand in front of everyone and paint away as if they are on live TV instead of really being helpful. Super useful class!
