Learn the best practices, what supplies are needed, the difference between paints, brushes, painting surfaces, and mediums. In addition to exploring the materials, students will learn to think and see like an artist as they dive into painting. Develop a visual vocabulary, artistic objectives, and the techniques to get you there.

  • Lessons will teach you how to:
  • Conceptualize a painting
  • Create a value key and color palette
  • Design a composition
  • How to make three-dimensional objects on a flat surface
  • Maintain a focal point

This is an experiential learning class. Each student will have an opportunity to work from still life setups and explore an interest in portraiture, landscape, still life, animals, and/or interior scenes.

Students have the option to learn from master copies or simple still life setups that will complement the lessons learned. Paintings from photographs is not encouraged but if it meets the student’s objectives it can be an option.
