DATES: Tuesdays for 8 weeks from April 24th to June 12th
TIME:  3 - 5 PM
LOCATION: Pratt Fine Arts Center, 1902 S Main St (map)

INFO: A major artistic decision in Self-Portraiture is the decision of palette – of colors used. From the realism of Turner and Sargent to the bold colors of the Fauvists to the distinctive blending of pastel in the Impressionists' work, color has helped define a statement about perception and interpretation as well as used as an expression of personality and state of mind. This class will look at various uses of color in self-portraiture throughout art history and teach various palettes used. The final project will be a self-portrait (from mirror observation) with the artist's choice of palette. Add a little color to your life!
