Upcoming March Zoom Berkeley Arts Council Art Classes!

Coming in March, “All About Color I” will be held on Wednesdays March 17, 24, 31, April 7 from 6:30-8:30pm.  This class is a comprehensive study of color and all its attributes necessary to producing outstanding 2-dimensional art.  Participants will learn about color theory, rules in using and mixing colors, using the color wheel, triads and tetrads, color in design, color schemes and much more.  Class is comprised of both lectures and hands-on exercises, and is useful for beginners as well as advanced artists.

“Creative Techniques for Painting Landscapes” will be offered on Thursdays, March 4, 11, 18 and 25 from 2:00-4:00pm.  Discover interesting, even unusual, ways to reinterpret a landscape photo.  Using the same reference photo for all four class sessions, participants will select exciting color schemes, redesign the composition through cropping and highlighting, eliminate uninteresting elements, change the focal point, and explore how to abstract the subject.

All classes will be offered via the Zoom application.  Pre-registration is required.  For more information, materials lists, class prices, and to register, visit https://berkeleyartswv.org/instruction/#zoom.  Due to the pandemic, the Council has suspended in-person classes.  Watch the Berkeley Arts Council Web site http://www.berkeleyartswv.org for more Zoom classes as they become available.  Direct questions via e-mail to berkeleyartswv@gmail.com or call 304-620-7277.
