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.
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.
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.
