Introduction to Painting, Step by Step
Using oil or acrylic paints, students will learn the basics of painting in easily digestible stages. You will learn how to set up a palette, use painting mediums and brushes, mix colors, create correct values, and understand the principles of good composition. Of particular benefit is a logical and almost foolproof method for mixing colors correctly. Students will receive multiple instructional handouts to clarify and reinforce what is learned in class. In addition, the work of old and contemporary masters is discussed each week as it relates to student work.
Those taking the class should have some basic drawing skills. Students will receive a list of materials needed prior to class. All materials must be brought to first class.
