Wednesdays, June 14 through August 23 (except July 5), 2017, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
This class will teach your eyes to see color in new ways and give you the basic skills to translate your vision into paint on canvas. At the beginning of each class we will look at and discuss slides of paintings by such artists as Van Gough, Monet, Sargent, Latour and Thiebaud. By so doing, we will develop a common vocabulary about composition, form, color and brushwork, and deepen our appreciation of the creative process. At the end of each class, we will share each other’s creative energy in a group critique. Basic instruction and demonstrations in color, composition and painting technique will be provided. The class subjects will be a series of progressively more and more complicated still lifes. Some drawing experience is required.
