    Welcome to Nita Leland's Exploring Color Class News

    Class News
    Here's the 2015 exhibit--our tenth at Hithergreen now on exhibit until March 30. We've covered a lot of ground since the class started in 2002. They are doing amazing work and I'm very proud of them.

    This is the 2012 exhibit. We've covered a lot of ground since the class started in 2002. They are doing amazing work and I'm very proud of them. My class had their sixth exhibition in 2011 at Hithergreen Center. You can see it here.. And, here's a link to our fifth exhibit and another to the fourth exhibit in 2009, "Exploring Watercolor.".

    SylviaI enjoy bragging about my Exploring Watercolor class. One of their accomplishments was a 3-way challenge from a series on painting one subject three different ways: realistic, stylistic, and abstract. This activity is in The New Creative Artist on page 167. Shown at right is Sylvia Dugan's stylized version of a still life with three peppers.

    Visit my blog starting here to see their wonderful self portraits. Check out the 2-hour Challenge, too: Exploring Watercolor 2-hour Challenge and enjoy this mosaic of colorful artwork that the class did a while ago. We explored some of the concepts in my book, Confident Color. Their response to this exercise was awesome.

    Photoshopping with The New Creative Artist--Check out this entry on my blog, then view a few pages from the book.
