What you'll learn in this painting class:

Ready to explore painting? In this class you will learn the basics including - how to keep your colors clean and vibrant, mix shadow colors and use brush strokes to describe the form. There are many styles you can explore in this workshop. Open to all ages & levels.

What you will learn:
Learn to paint simple to complex objects
Learn how to understand value
Work with lighting as it relates to form
Learn how to paint and mix clean colors.

Learn to create the illusion of 3 dimension

We have structured this foundation painting class so that many different skill levels from absolute beginner to intermediate artist can participate. Start the class with basic painting exercises along with explaining your painting materials and how to use them to your advantage. We will spend time painting the basic forms from a still life set up using direct lighting to help you understand value. You will learn how to see these same basic forms when you paint more complex objects. You will learn about proper proportions and relationships. We will cover eye level and foundation perspective, explore line and values, direct lighting and cast shadows as well as soft and hard edges. You will be given lots of one on one instruction with plenty of demonstrations to guide you through the different elements of good painting.

It is not a class but a place where artists come to improve and be inspired.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 5/22/2019
I only signed up for the 1 day, 3-hour class. I’m a beginner so I was looking for more specific instruction. But the instructor was great, I did learn some basic stuff, and it was a laid back environment. I think it would be better to sign up for the multiple day courses.
