Join us in learning about Adolf Bernd and his painted letters. While it is quite difficult to summarize his work, Heather Rohnert will share about Adolf's tonal work that marks him out as quite unique. We'll examine modern work inspired by Adolf, discuss color theory, and play with watercolor activities to help us develop our own painted letters.
