Marie Thibeault - Unleashing Color
Los Angeles-based artist, Marie Thibeault, will be holding a three-day workshop on color. Seems simple enough, but color is one of those vital and essential aspects of art that can either go terribly wrong or be so right that it changes how the inside of your mouth feels when looking at it. Thibeault, whose own abstract oil painting uses a deep sense of color to explore the instability of our environment, has been teaching color theory for over 20 years . This intensive course, which runs from June 20 to July 1, will be a combination of the classes she has taught at California State University, Long Beach. Students will be guided through various collage and painting processes to help deepen the connection to color and apply that to creative work.
