FALL Classes with Jackie Jones

Jackie Jones will continue her very popular morning classes in beginner oils and acrylics and afternoon classes in intermediate oils and acrylics.

Session 1: September 11, 18, 25 and October 2. Session 2: October 23, 30, November 6 and 13 at the Marlborough Arts Center, 231 North Main Street in Marlborough. The classes are from 9:00 a.m. – 12 noon and 1:00 – 4pm. 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 own black and white 9 step value scale and a color wheel. Next we will practice basic black and white values, followed by 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). INTERMEDIATE OILS & ACRYLIC PAINTING 1-4 In this class, students will create a 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 the subject, rather than just copying a photograph. This class will include an instructor demo and plenty of individual attention. Contacted Jackie Jones directly for registration and complete details at: jacquelinejonesart@gmail.com
