Color: Intensity with Acrylics
Partnership with DukeCreate & DuWell
About the Workshop
By strategically applying highly saturated hues to various shades of grey, placing color in a composition can heighten the emotional impact of an artwork. In this painting workshop with Durham artist William Paul Thomas, participants will be given an image by the instructor to practice this concept using acrylics on paper.
