This class will be an opportunity to play with colour & discover a palette that works best for you. Students will blend, mix, and record swatches of oil colours to use as a colour reference.  Students will work towards completing their portraits or getting it to a place of being satisfied with the results. Students who do not completely finish their project within the weekend will have the tools to do so on their own afterwards.
