Great gift idea!

Not sure what you want for Christmas? Don't know what to give that special artist in your life.  How about a Missouri Botanical art class.  Beginning January 6, 2012, Judy Seyfert will have the following class on color. 

Of the art elements, color is the most expressive.  For the watercolor artist it presents special challenges.  In this class artists will increase their knowledge of color by exploring color relationships, including basic color harmonies that create successful paintings.  We will analyze popular pigments and learn their strengths, weaknesses, and limitations.  Artists will study the language of color:  temperature, value, hue, intensity, complementary, analogous, etc.  Judy will teach you how to make rational color choices to build your own personal palette. Experienced watercolorist only; Studio class. (Four week class) Designed for adults only.
Class dates are Fridays, January 6, 13, 20, 27  (Snow dates: Feb. 3, 10, 17)
Time:  10:00 am to 1:00 p.m.
Place: The Missouri Botanical Garden, Commence Bank Center for Science
