The Trowbridge Atelier is a multi-year, online program that focuses on developing an understanding of color and the method of color-blocking, wherein color is the primary building block for constructing images.
Students learn to analyze color relationships based on value, temperature, hue, and intensity under the guidance of teaching artist Kimberly Trowbridge.
Two sessions per week are with instruction and include: lectures on historical and contemporary paintings, introduction of formal concepts, and demonstrations of studio exercises. Students work from observed still-life objects, master-work compositions, and the figure model. An additional session per week is dedicated to individual studio time. Sessions are interspersed with individual consultations and group critiques.
The Atelier begins in mid-September and ends in mid-June.
Trowbridge Atelier students are automatically included in all free programs, exhibitions and sales opportunities at Gage's Capitol Hill campus, as well as Georgetowns Art Walk and Equinox exhibitions.
