By Sushmita Mazumdar

Program Note: This class has an updated time.

Explore your relationship to individual colors and how they connect to many facets of your life. In this beginner-level class, practice simple and playful acrylic painting techniques incorporating all the colors of the spectrum, plus black and white. Then, begin to record personal stories in a journal to use every day.

Instructor Sushmita Mazumdar shares her passion for storytelling as she guides students in exploring their responses to color. They choose from favorite colors and others associated—in both positive and negative ways—with places, ideas, and concepts.

Art-making experience is not required. Just bring an open mind and a curious heart.

Note: In-person programs are not recorded.
