Bridge the gap between abstract theory and practical knowledge through skillful instruction. Get an introduction to James Gurney’s “Color and Light” and learn to apply its principles to botanical illustration. Learn the theory of color as it applies to creating a realistic image. Get plenty of individual guidance and learn how to work both in gray scale and color mediums while creating your final piece, a convincingly realistic illustration similar to those in Gurney’s book. A copy of the book, which James Gurney signs especially for you, is included in the course price.


Prerequisite: Entry-level color media.


Fee: $290 member, $340 non-member. Includes fee for supplies provided (specified in the materials list).


Date(s): Thu, July 25, Aug. 8, 15, 22, 29, 1-4 p.m.

Instructor: Randy Raak
