Color me happy

. February 27, 2013.

The perfect antidote to dreary mid-winter landscapes: vibrant, thrilling color that starts in your child’s head and ends up in a beautiful piece of finished art. Your budding Picassos and Chagalls are welcome to drop in to Talking Colors Studio's series of Wednesday classes, located at the Rudolph Steiner School. “We help students create large-scale projects using professional quality materials,” says founder Elena Townsend-Efimova, an internationally-renowned art educator. “The results are exceptional.” She and her faculty of instructors take inspiration from “everywhere: the seasons, nature, the quality of light at a particular time of year,” and teach across a variety of media, including collage, mosaic, pastels, charcoal, and more. Classes are intentionally small, and geared to maximum expression. The sessions are $40 per participant, all materials included, and are held Wednesdays 4:30-6:30 pm for ages 10 to adult; check the website or call the school to find out about Sunday classes yet to be scheduled.
