This winter my Wednesday morning watercolor class will be all about creating fun, whimsical imagery. We’re going to be creating eye-popping paintings of people, animals, and other everyday subjects – but in a way that’s totally unexpected. These little creations will get you mixing and using colors in ways you might not have considered. However, you’ve got to be willing to leave your inhibitions at the door, be brave, and ready to try new things. It’ll definitely keep you fresh and loose as you give yourself permission to have a good time with your brushwork.
Yes, you can expect to receive color illustrated class handouts and well-prepared instruction, including demos each week. Everyone will have plenty of time to paint in class and will always receive a great deal of one-on-one attention from the instructor.
Some experience in watercolor is recommended.
This class is designed for novice-to-intermediate painters – but all levels are welcome.
About the Instructor
Randy Hale did undergraduate work in studio design at Principia College. He had the privilege of being taught watercolor in that tradition of painting now known as the California school of watercolor by one of its original members – James Green. Randy went on to earn a graduate degree in Business from the University of Denver. But it was his immersion in studies at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA where he crafted a solid foundation in design and composition. Art Center propelled him into a long and successful career in design, project management, and sales. Pitching creative concepts provided a strong foundation in working successfully with people. Once Randy moved back to Colorado his involvement with numerous art groups led to his serving on several boards, organizing shows both locally and nationally, jurying art exhibitions and providing entertaining painting demonstration programs throughout the country. But Randy’s true passion has proved to be sharing his knowledge as a teacher and workshop instructor. His PAINTED PALETTE TOURS offers students a chance to enjoy the excitement of travel with fellow painters, discovering exotic locations and capturing expressive paintings that provide further enrichment of those travel experiences. His classes and workshops are popular, fill quickly and generate wait-lists with painters eager to join.
