What you'll learn in this painting class:

​​One of the comments heard most often by art students: "I want to loosen up." This class will explore what this means to each student and will include thoughts, methods, and exercises to achieve your goal.

We will also be looking at iconic artists along the way: Franz Kline, Matisse (who has lessons for all artists), Shirley Trevana, Barbara Hepworth, and Pat Steir to name a few. Our goal will be to complete one or more paintings reflecting the new "loose you!"

Supply List:

  • canvas or wood panel
  • acrylic paint, any colors you have
  • brushes, any
  • color shapers
  • charcoal (black and white)
  • graphite
  • paraphernalia for mixed media
  • ​mixed media paper for smaller studies

Suggested prerequisites for this class: ​Art 101 or Intro to Abstract Acrylics.
