Are you sometimes creatively underwhelmed with landscapes that are “all green”, or urban scenes that are “all grey” or any subject that features less than exciting colors? How do you translate your subject into colors that convey a more personal expression? How do you choose, mix and paint colors that you don’t actually see? How do you harmonize these colors and work with the color wheel / color schemes to assure that your painting will hold together in the end? If you have ever asked any or all of these questions, this workshop is for you!

Patti Mollica, author of “Color Theory, an Essential Guide to Color” will be teaching the strategy behind working with color schemes and pushing color choices to the next level. If you are ready to embark upon new level of color exploration, don’t miss this workshop. Take your understanding of color to a new level in this intensive hands-on workshop. Learn how to harness color to make dynamic, harmonious and creative color choices in your artwork. All skill levels are welcome!


Patti Mollica delights in painting the world around her in a bold, confident style, with hues that are vibrant, energetic and contemporary. Her work is known for its fearless use of color and expressive brushwork, while still blending a delicate balance between impressionism, abstraction, and realism.

Patti has been commissioned by, and is included in the private collections of American Express, Sheraton Hotels, CBS & RCA Records, Penguin Press and many others. Additionally, she is a Certified Teacher for Golden Paints and conducts workshops throughout the U.S., covering topics such as “Innovative Acrylic Techniques using Golden Paints”, as well as “How to Paint Fast, Loose and Bold”.

Patti’s original artwork is represented in several galleries throughout the US. Published prints and posters can be found in retail chains worldwide. Patti is the author of 4 books,"How to Paint Fast, Loose, and Bold", “Modern Acrylics “, “Color Theory”, “Acrylics – Getting Started”, as well as 3 instructional painting DVD’s, “Value, Brushwork, and Color Techniques”, published by Northlight Books.

If you cancel before the 30-day limit you will receive a full refund. Unfortunately, students who start a multiple-day workshop and are unable to attend any portion of the class will not receive a refund.


Workshop will be canceled or rescheduled if inclement weather (hurricanes, snow storm, tropical storm, black ice, flooding, etc.) is on the forecast, or if a global health issue (pandemic) prevents groups from gathering.
