“I dream my painting, then I paint my dream.” Vincent Van Gogh
Painting is an act of liberation. Learn and apply the fundamentals and basic painting techniques to connect with painting and express yourself. This class will introduce painting with acrylics and oils and explore a variety of techniques and applications focusing on the versatility of the medium.
This class is ideal for beginners and intermediate student-artists who want to improve their painting skills, learn a step-by-step process. The class will cover color combination, form, texture, composition, and the use of brushes and other painting tools. Students will use a limited palette in order to learn how to mix a variety of colors.
Through individual instruction, demonstrations, and exercises, beginners will learn how to combine colors, find form, and texture and composition; advanced students will work on expanding visual vocabulary and technical skills. Students will also be able to decipher how a painting is produced and by which technique. At the end of the six classes, each student will complete 4 to 5 paintings.
