Local Color: Observing Place Through Color: A Two-Day Watercolor Workshop with Mimi Robinson
Workshop | April 10 – 11, 2019 every day | 10 a.m.-3 p.m. | UC Botanical Garden
Have you ever noticed that each place has its own distinct set of colors? This hands-on watercolor workshop helps us explore the colors of the unique flora and fauna that make up The UC Botanical Garden. Through classroom and field studies we will develop personal and collective color palettes that reflect this remarkable place. You may also discover what is surprising and unexpected along the way. Learn and refine your color mixing skills, and how limited palettes can create a wide range of subtle color. The workshop is intended to appeal to both the experienced artist and the complete novice, as well as travelers looking for a unique and memorable way to capture impressions of places.
