A three-day intensive immersion exploring the physical dynamics of color. This class is designed to change the way you see and understand color dynamics.

Each morning I will be giving you exercises in mixing color, exploring color harmony and tension, and discovering your native palette.

In the afternoons you will be making art that expands on the work you did in the morning. Come prepared to have fun, work hard and stretch your understanding of the power and dynamics of color.


SERENA HAZARD has her BFA in Painting. She has had a long and rich studio practice, has exhibited her work up and down the West Coast, and most recently was one of four artists selected for a two-month artist residency in Joshua Tree.

Her love of the physicality of art making has led her to develop her expertise in the language of materials and pushing the edge of their alchemy.

But... no matter the love affair with the materials and the mark making of a painting, the color palette for her is the weight of a painting’s success. Steeped in the Bauhaus teachings of Josef Albers and Jonathan Itten while in art school, she continues to explore and teach the powerful lifelong journey with color dynamics/potency and how to retrain our brains to “see” without thought.
