The Color of Light — Focusing on color and light, Sally discusses optical mixing of layered color and how to truly see and identify color, especially subtle color. The effects of light on color, composition, and perception, as well as use of different types of light are explored. Painting from costumed models and still life, each student receives individual attention and critiques. Demonstrations, lectures and a slide show are designed to give students tools to achieve intensely beautiful color.

Composition and Light — Composition is one of the most challenging elements of creating a painting. Sally presents the foundational elements of composition and design on which all great representational paintings rest. You will study major principles such as pictorial space, balance, dominance, massing, contrast of content, and the use of opposites. You will see how light is a major tool to create a compelling motif, key a painting, and evoke emotion. Painting from still life and clothed models each student receives individual attention and critiques. Demonstrations, lectures and slide presentations of classical and modern masterworks are designed to help you achieve powerfully convincing paintings that stand out.

Sally Strand, a Master Pastelist, was inducted into the Hall of Fame, the highest commendation of the Pastel Society of America, NY.
