Adult painting sessions for intermediate, advanced and beginner levels. Artists work from reference photos (yours or supplied - primarily landscape or still life). Regular painting demonstrations and the instructor paint along with participants allowing them total freedom to explore the medium and to help when needed. Each artist no matter what level receives individual attention working at their own pace to develop better techniques of drawing, composition and color theory. Paintings are developed to a finished stage, working with final values to make them cohesive and dynamic. All teaching is done with a totally positive approach and an understanding of each artist’s personal desires through interaction and discussion. The goal of these sessions while developing skills is for artists to totally enjoy the painting experience. Acrylic is the perfect step from watercolor into an opaque, solid medium. Material list available.
