Intro to Color Charts

Learning the art of color mixing can transform your art! In this workshop, artist Lauren Florence will walk you through a variety of color charts: a simple matrix, a value chart, a circle, and a parent color chart. Class discussion will cover the benefits of each chart, the benefits of creating your own charts for quick reference in your studio, and the benefits of painting with a limited palette. Chart templates will be provided and you will work on completing them in class.

Instructor’s name:

With a background in silk dyeing, Oklahoma City based artist, Lauren Florence, turned to acrylics and canvas after the birth of her son.  With the same vibrant colors she used on silk, her paintings now have form in vibrant, realistic expressionism. Her subject matter is inspired by a deep love of the people and wildlife of Oklahoma and the American West. Lauren has a BFA in Textile Design from the University of Kansas.

Lauren began showing her work in the summer of 2017 with a solo show at Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Refuge. She now teaches workshops at North Gallery in North Park Mall in Oklahoma City, and teaches mini-workshops at Oklahoma City area businesses through the Allied Arts Corporate Giving Campaign each spring.
