Join celebrated artist Gordon MacDonald for a special workshop series that will focus entirely on COLOUR. These workshops will be divided into three parts: The first will be a highly informative lecture/ demo on colour, and our perception of it in reference to painting. This lecture is suitable for anyone and everyone interested in painting – all skill levels are welcome! The second lecture will dive further into the study of colour and it’s practical application in painting. Finally, the third segment in this series will be dedicated to those who want to paint alongside Gordon’s instruction: working on a 4” x 5” surfaces and applying the information presented by Gordon in previous workshops.
