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. * Starter art kits can be purchased for an additional fee, if you do not have supplies (email Jackie at firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing).
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.
