Core Level 4

$149.00 for 1 year

An advanced fine artist knows that even a single color can have five or more different shades, they call these shades values. In this more advanced skill level, students will learn how to see and include various values in their projects. They will learn more advanced forms of watercolor pencil. Sharon will introduce the students to the art of tooling copper. She will also advance students to new levels of technique and skill in oil pastel and silk dying. How do you get a wind-blown effect on a flag in the background of a silk dye? Sign up for level four to find out!

Each project is a complete masterpiece and is made up of three to seven lessons which are divided into multiple smaller sections. Most lessons will take the average student an hour to an hour and a half to complete.
