In this class we will cover the foundations of good painting practice: color relationship, subject matter, application of paint, composition, and much more!
Techniques using color wash, modeling form, paint & brush choices, layering, working with mediums, and choosing substrates will be explored. Students will be guided, to become confident in experience with color, form, and the adventure of painting as a personal language! Bring notepaper and pencil; a range of supplies will be discussed in detail during the first class.
This six-week class will meet on Sundays: September 10, 17, 24, October 1, 15, and 22 (skip October 8). Each session is 2.5 hours.
