An artist demonstration from Painting in Full Color IV with Julie Hanson will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 30, at Art Center Sarasota. The Painting in Full Color IV with Julie Hanson: Acrylic, Intermediate/Advanced course will be held over the course of six weeks. Classes will take place from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesdays, April 3 through May 8. Cost is $170 for members; $200 for non-members. Learn how to paint the "temperature" of color. This approach is used in "Plein Air" painting. This class is for those wanting to use color in a powerful and expressive way. Mediums in order of preference are oil, water-soluble oil, pastel and acrylic. Although watercolor is not the best medium for learning this approach, you can very easily apply this new knowledge to your watercolor painting. We will work from a variety of subject matter that includes photographs in studio and occasionally on location.
