"Color Boot Camp"
October 1-4, 2018

Discover a new way of seeing color! Good color, or color that expresses the light key of nature, can make even the most mundane subject matter strikingly beautiful. Camille sees a remarkable change in her students’ work after only one day of painting. They begin to see color in the shadows. Many students say they have discovered a world of color that has changed them forever! We will be doing still life study outdoors, painting the landscape on location, and color studies of the figure. We will concentrate on the development of strong starts, and focus on expressing big masses, light key, and aerial perspective with color. Class size is limited to ensure individual attention and instruction.

Working from the still life, and in the landscape and with the figure outdoors near Laguna Beach and San Juan Capistrano, we will work hard but have fun. Many meals are included.
