Before they created their masterworks, history's most renowned artists, from Leonardo da Vinci to Jackson Pollock, all faced a blank canvas. At her Promising Palette classes, Carol O'Malley gives students a leg up over the greats by providing canvases already outlined with a design. Once Carol introduces her favorite color-blending techniques, apron-clad pupils of all skill levels dip brushes into provided acrylic paints and apply their own color scheme to that particular night's chosen image. After sessions wrap, students can take their canvases home or waltz into the Louvre to find free wall space.
