Description

Fundamentals of Painting (6 classes)

Class will cover setting up a palette and considerations to take into account when selecting paints, brushes, and mediums. Students will be encouraged to bring their own projects to work on. Instruction will focus on the development of their painting from the beginning to completion. This will cover laying in a monochromatic underpainting, blocking in local color, developing the detail, and final enhancement of the painting with glazing and scumbling techniques. In the course of developing the painting color relationships and design will also be discussed.

Students should expect to have 1 to 2 completed paintings by the end of the session.
