Pigment, Paint, Mix!  with Pat Tribastone
Do you sometimes struggle to find the right mixtures for your paints? Have you done mixing charts, only to find that paints vary between manufacturers? In this two-week class Pat will discuss pigment properties that will help you choose the right paint at the store, and then successfully mix the colors you are looking for. The focus will be on oil paints, but other mediums can benefit from the information as well. Week one will focus on pigments and their properties.

A Special Note about Studio II Policies
Sometimes there can be too much of a good thing! The demand for Studio II classes is great, but the number of students who can be served is limited. This can result in disappointments and misunderstandings, so it seems best to spell out Studio II class policies and related information.
• Each teacher sets a class size depending on the space needed for each student. PRR’s oil classes are limited to 9 students.
• First come, first served! To register and hold your space, a class must be paid for. You can register and process payment by phone with a credit card or in person at the gallery.
• If you have to miss a class, a make-up may be possible by arrangement with the teacher and should be during that class session.
• If Canandaigua schools are closed due to weather, Studio II classes for that day are also cancelled. Please make sure we have your current contact details (phone, email) on file so we can contact you in case of sudden unforeseen events.
• Painting supplies purchased from the gallery must be paid for by the end of the current Studio II session.
• Cancelled classes will be made up.
• Artwork exhibited at the PRR gallery is by invitation of PRR.
Thank you!
