Beginning Painting (Oil or Acrylic)

Good For Beginners

This is an ideal class for absolute beginners or those with limited experience. This class introduces students to the fundamentals of painting including the tools, materials and techniques painters rely on. The emphasis will be on painting from observation, ways of starting a painting, understanding how to develop a painting using value and shape contrasts, as well as exploring the physical working properties of paint. Students will begin with a limited palette of hues but expand their color choices in the later part of the class. Guidance on how to set up and light a work space and subject matter will be provided. Group discussions will be held to share work, exchange experiences and receive feedback from the instructor. Students will also receive individual feedback.
