(materials not included)

 

ages 14+

 

***Materials for this class are not included unless you purchase the Oil/Acrylic Painting Materials Package***

 

Our classes are ongoing and students are automatically enrolled every month. Please let us know by the last class of the month if you do not want to continue.

 

This class will introduce you to the tools and techniques you will need to confidently approach any subject matter using oil and/or acrylic paints. Painting experience is not necessary, and the instructor will meet you where you are at! Students will start by learning basic drawing and painting techniques in grayscale (this can take 1-3 months) and how to render subject matter from life, then advance to creating full color paintings using a variety of techniques that will help each student find their technical and conceptual preference.

 

Students will learn how to render objects from life in a full value scale, color theory, basic art history, and will gain knowledge on how to use brushes and palette knives in order to create a functioning studio in and out of the classroom. We will discuss the principles of design and elements of art throughout the course where students will have some flexibility in subject matter as they master introductory techniques at their own pace. After creating successful still-life paintings in grayscale and color in the style of their choice, students will be encouraged to explore their individual preferences as a painter in a variety of subject matters, or graduate to the advanced painting class.

 

Enrollment is continuous unless otherwise specified
