What you'll learn in this painting class:

Explore the wonderful world of color and texture through abstract expression in this exploratory art class. Color is a powerful and a vital tool in all art and design- It impacts our moods, emotions, and behaviors and can be a source of information. While an individual's response to color can stem from personal experience, how we respond to our surroundings, and the science of color along with color psychology supports the idea there's far more to it.

In this class we will look at color in terms of hue, value, and intensity; quality of pigments and brightness, high intensity color that is strong and bright or low intensity colors that are faint and muted. We will discover texture through different paint applications, and look at contemporary master artists for references and ideas.

Learn how to use different sized and shaped brushes: from pointed brushes to flat wide brushes and other tools like fabric rags, special knives to scrape with, sponges, even your own fingers—to put paint on canvas in unique ways. This is an exciting class for students to explore, perfect for beginner to intermediate levels.

Art Supplies:

  • Canvas are NOT included in your course fee. Please purchase a canvas and bring it with you to class, we recommend a medium size canvas to begin with. Canvas may be purchased at your local art store (support small business when you can!). Please note you may need more than one canvas for a full class course.

Adult: Express Yourself! Color + Texture Adventure
Reviewed by Anonymous on 11/10/2019
Love my teacher- Chris! She's awesome! I was a total beginner to oil painting, she was very patient and knowledgeable to teach me how to mix and blend, and she stayed open-minded to help me experimenting with abstract forms and colors. I am very intrigued to oil paintings now and would love to do more. The only concern is the price of the class + canvas expense is slightly over my budget. A package deal for $50/per class would be ideal to me.
