This class introduces the foundational concepts of oil and acrylic painting, covering composition, value, color, and materials. The emphasis is on composition, techniques for making texture, and methods for creating a perfect illusion. Beginning students work on an introductory project encompassing various techniques. Experienced participants have a choice of independent projects or projects designed by the instructor. Acrylics are used to speed up the process of learning, but experienced artists are encouraged to use oils. Any medium is welcome.
