About the Workshop:

Paint like Alma Thomas using lots of brush strokes and bright colors to create a fantasy composition. In this workshop participants will recreate Alma Thomas' Apollo 12 "Splash Down" (1970). Between 1969 and 1972, by then in her eighties, Thomas developed a series of paintings devoted to space exploration. “Apollo 12 “Splash Down,” a brilliant seascape of pink sky and surging water, is one of her triumphs.

In this workshop we will delve into color theory and mix a wide variety of hues as we create our own version of this famous work! At the completion of the workshop, participants will leave with a completed 11x14 painting.
