This will be my second tine teaching in this historic, port city through the Farigh Ghaderi Art studio. It is a marvelous opportunity the prismatic palette in both urban and rural environments.

Learn to see more deeply.

This 5-day workshop at Farigh Ghaderi ArtStudio will introduce you to the power and subtlety of the Prismatic Palette. You will learn to capture what makes each day unique through the use of an elegant underpainting, rhythmically connected drawing, structured value scale and solid understanding of color as value.  Further we will delve into how color is affected by atmosphere and the Prismatic Effect.
You will never look at nature the same way.

Humility and a healthy respect for nature required.
