Would you like to learn to paint but not sure about the initial investment or where to start? This class is a fabulous choice. As a class we start with the basics exploring painting materials, handling oil paints and the various mediums available. We discuss different brushes, hog hair, sable or synthetic and what works best in various situations. Paint application, mixing paints and achieving specific values are all topics covered. All critiques are given on an individual basis so every level of experience is welcome. This class prepares you for the next level of painting and allows you to work in safe environment under the direction of an experienced instructor.
Instructor Sharon Stadther has been drawing her whole life. Her artistic education started at an early age and became much more focused in high school where she was submerged in all mediums available.
She has been trained by great artists throughout her life, including at the College of Art & Design in Oakland, California, and at the Atelier in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Stadther’s artistic philosophy is based in a strong belief, adhering to the fundamentals of design coupled with the elements of art. All works of art either abstract or contemporary must possess these fundamental elements to have any lasting effect.
The techniques she employs in her paintings are old school and serve her philosophy well. Stadther hopes to accomplish a lasting body of work that is sensitive, beautiful and dynamic.
