T Pre-registration is required.he Impressionists were known for their use of vivid colour, as a reaction to the careful academic art that had been the norm until then. A. Y. Jackson was trained in the academic style, then went to France to learn about newer styles and techniques. The Impressionist influence is clearly seen in his work, yet it's not immediately obvious how he got the effects that he did.
In this class, JoAnn Turner will look at how A.Y. Jackson got the vivid clear colour effects he did. We'll cover basic colour theory and talk about how the Impressionists used colour to capture "the vibration of light.". We'll talk mainly about painting, but the principles of colour will work in many different media. There'll be some art history, some colour theory, probably a few laughs, and lots of time playing with colour.
