Young Artists: Painting in Colour, part of the Spirit Hawk Eye: Native American Cultural Season
July 21, 2015 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Comanche artist Nocona Burgess teaches colour theory at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Use spray paint and stencilling techniques to give a textiles effect to your paintings.
