Learn to paint scenes of Pittsburgh, abstractions and portraits with local artist Ryan Ian McCormick at Assemble. The course teaches students how to use just two colors (complimentary colors) to create vibrant paintings. The “complimentary color technique” was invented by McCormick. He created this approach due to his colorblindness and inability to see “in-between colors.” So, come out and learn this new and unique way to paint!

The class will take place from 5pm-9pm on the second Saturday of each month in 2015 and is BYOB.

You don’t have to have any experience to participate, just a willingness to have fun during the creative process. The class is geared toward adults and teenagers.

Included in the price of each class are brushes, acrylic paint to use, professional instruction, and a 14″ x 18″ canvas to take home each class.
