Class Description

​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 materials and how to use them to your advantage. We will spend time drawing & painting the basic forms from life using direct lighting to help you understand value.


You will learn how to see these same basic forms when you draw & 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.

Drawing Materials 

● Conte charcoal pencil B 

● Smooth newsprint 18"x24" preferably Pacon newsprint form Target. You can get 500 sheets for around $15 which is the cheapest option and it's also super smooth newsprint but only online. A pad of Borden and Reily / Strathmore work too. 
● 18"x 24" tracing paper 

Other supplies 

● Kneaded eraser 
● X-acto knife and sanding pad or pencil sharpener (Conte pencils are thick. Make sure you get one with a big hole.)
● Drawing pad with clips

Painting Materials

● Bristles (Robert Simmons preferred): Flats 2, 4, 6, 8 and Rounds 2
● Sables: (synthetic) Rounds 2, 4 and Flats 2, 4, 6 

● 11”x14” and 8″ x 10″ Canvas: Fredrix pre-stretched cotton canvas: red or green label (Preferred Brand: Fredrix but other brands are OK.) 

Gamblin paints are preferred since I find them pretty good quality and affordable. Welcome to any brand that isn't a student or Gamblin's 1980 brand which is also student use.
● Titanium White
● Yellow Ochre
● Cadmium Red Light
● Ivory black
● Burnt Umber
● Ultramarine Blue (optional)

● Linseed Oil with a small container to put it in

Other supplies
● Roll of Shop Towels
● Metal palette knife
● Palette, preferably the StaWet Palette with glass inside. Glass comes separately, but you may be able to ask the store to put the glass inside the palette. It fits a 12"x16" glass sheet. I like to mix my paint on glass because the paint moves around very easily and it doesn’t absorb any of the oil like the disposable sheets do. You can get a piece of glass that fits perfectly at Home Depot if they don't have it in the art store. Or you can get a wood or paper palette.
● Disposable rubber gloves
● Brush Cleaner preferably the B&J "The Masters" Brush Cleaner (optional)
● Clove oil to keep the paint wet (optional)

A make-up class may not be used in the class you are in or added on at the end of the session. Make-ups expire at the end of the year they were acquired in.

If you sign up for a class and need to miss some of the dates within the month you may be able to take advantage of our makeup policy (see above). Please note any changes made to enrollment may incur a $75 administrative fee.
