Classes begin with demos, tips and hints followed by enforced painting time. The first class will focus on observational drawing skills, seeing value and contrast, selecting still life objects to paint. The second class will look at landscapes and/or interiors using a viewfinder to draw and paint, and the third class will use photos as reference, including photos on digital media like cameras, iphones and laptops. We will study drawing skills, composition, value, using a viewfinder, preparatory sketching, mixing color and color theory. Each class will also incorporate gentle critiques looking at your work and seeing how many ways there are to see a similar object. You will bring your adult experience to this class and your courage and your non-judgmental self, and you will learn.
