Adult Summer Art Camp at Historic Sunnyside School

Students at Sunnyside Community Club are going into their fourth week of watercolor and drawing instruction. The first three weeks have been spent learning how to make and use a color wheel, practicing a few painting techniques, and developing drawing skills. This Wednesday we will begin “observation” training. (A contour drawing of the subject can provide the perfect path to access one’s natural ability to process visual information. Understanding color; how to analyze the color in a subject and how to select and mix primaries to duplicate that color. This is the key to harmonious color schemes, creating complex color rather than flat out of a tube, and making clear, glowing color instead of muddy mixes.
