This class is now full. Please contact me if you are interested in a future session. 

Class meets on 4 Tuesdays, March 22nd to April 12th from 5:30PM-8:00PM 

Are you new to painting and not sure where to start? Let's remove some barriers by starting at the beginning. I believe that painting is something you learn by doing, not necessarily a talent you're born with. Painting is a language that is much easier to speak once you learn some basic vocabulary. In this 4 week class we'll go over the fundamental components of painting including painting materials, basic color theory and paint mixing, composition, working from the still life, and using a critical (but compassionate) eye. 

Some previous drawing practice is helpful but not required. For those who have taken some painting in the past there will be some review in addition to learning new ways to approach painting.
