New Classes with Jackie Jones

Jackie Jones will continue her very popular morning classes in beginner oils and acrylics, and afternoon classes in all media on September 12, 19, 26 and October 3, 2018 at the Marlborough Arts Center, 231 North Main Street in Marlborough. The morning classes are from 9:00 a.m. – 12 noon. The afternoon classes are from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.  The complete set of four classes, either morning or afternoon, is 12 hours in length. The fee for one complete set of classes is $120.

1).BEGINNER OILS & ACRYLICS 9-12
This class is designed for those new to painting. We will make our on black and white 9 step value scale and a color wheel. Next we will create a basic black and white still life then on to color mixing exercises. Lastly we will paint a simple landscape from a, provided, photograph. Note: Although my specialty is oils and acrylics, all mediums are welcome.

2). PAINTING THE LANDSCAPE IN ALL MEDIA 1-4
In this class, students will create a landscape painting using photographic reference (bring your favorite photos or use mine). The goal is to create simple designs with strong foundations derived from a ‘thumbnail’ value sketch. Value, composition and technique will be stressed as well as capturing the feeling of a landscape, rather than just copying a photograph. This class will include an instructor demo and plenty of individual attention.
