Please join us for an evening with Karen Braverman.
"Whose afraid of the Dark?"

Dark values help make your painting come alive, have drama, definition and POP!. Sometimes following the rules is not enough. A variation in Value enhances anything you paint including faces, trains, and even rocks! Karen show you her tips for mixing dark Values and making sure your painting has a good range of values.
