Artistic Pursuits 2 – Color and Composition

Melissa Zendejas, Instructor

This course encourages students to “think creatively as they learn to use the color wheel and explore their world in an engaging study designed to strengthen observation skills. Art appreciation lessons show how color is used through the study of master artworks by Caillebotte, Gauguin, Degas, and others. Students gain insight by looking at art from countries around the world including many pastel works by European Impressionists, plus works from Mexico, Celtic tribes, and more.” (Artistic Pursuits)
