Acrylic, Watercolor, and Oil Painting Class for Adults. All Levels

Learn the magic of color, hue, value, intensity, and temperature. Color choice can be difficult because you are not just making one decision you are making four decisions. This will be taught to all skill levels in Oil, Acrylic, and Watercolor in a representational form letting your own individual style emerge. Each student will be given individual attention in whatever genre they decide upon, whether it is figure, portrait, landscape or still-life.

For any medium you choose bring several reference pictures you would like to work from.

Come to class prepared to paint. - Run both sides of paper under water at sink until paper is thoroughly rinsed (make sure sink area is clean - no cleaning, food or oil residue). Place watercolor paper on your board and staple edge leaving approx. 1/2" between staples. Let this dry overnight. If you would like, do a light pencil sketch of your subject the next day when your paper is dry. If you have not worked with watercolor before erase lightly with a knead eraser. Make sure your hands are clean and oil free before handling. I will have a subject for you to paint if you’re unsure of what to paint.
