    You can easily learn the basics while using acrylic paints! Bring your laptops to paint from your own uploaded photographs or images captured off the Internet. Of course, printed images are suitable for use as source material too. Students will explore traditional blocking-in methods while developing subject matter using expressive color, contrast and brushwork. After observing demonstrations, students will start off creating studies to learn basic techniques in color mixing and applications for building volume and space. The instructor will offer critiques that assist in constructive problem solving while exercising our vocabulary for the painting process. Supplies are provided by the student and a list will be sent one week prior to the start of class. Level: Beginner thru Intermediate.

    This class is also offered Tuesdays, 6:30 - 9 pm.

    Mixed Media - Painting with paper and acrylics. Using abstract or semi abstract styles, the student will learn to combine media to get unique results. There will be lots of layering back and forth from acrylic to papers. You will be encouraged to dampen the papers and actually mold them into your art. All the elements of design, texture, tone, line, and color will be emphasized. There will be ongoing critiques and demonstrations as well as helpful exercises. All levels are welcome.

    This studio style class will offer individual guidance and instruction as students work from photographs, iPads or a Still Life setup using their own mediums and tools (oils, acrylics, pastels... brushes, palette knives, charcoal...). Various aspects of painting and color theory are covered and discussed depending on one’s level or needs. It is an opportunity to develop your skills or pick up where you left off years ago. In a setting like this students learn from each other while being continuously inspired! Before class ends everyone participates in a critique of the works that were done that day. This is for students with intermediate painting skills through Advanced.
