This is a 6 week online class.

Advanced beginner and intermediate students who have a good working knowledge of their medium. Beginner pastelists can be accommodated.

This painting class offers you an opportunity to increase awareness of the technical, creative and emotional components of the painting process, leading artists to make thoughtful artistic decisions.  Artists will explore a variety of painting techniques and work towards identifying and expanding their painting goals. 

Classes will include focused lessons to develop consistency in implementing the principles of composition and color harmony.  Each session will feature a short-term focused topic with seasonal palettes for our changing landscape. This is an excellent way to hone observational skills with landscape and with still life

Class will begin with demonstrations or warm-up exercises intended to develop a thoughtful and expressive approach to painting; such as drawing skills, pre-planning for a painting, employing compositional structures, developing routines using values, notans & color studies. Artists will be encouraged to share, with critiques directed towards understanding and explaining the choices we make as artists.

Artists with a working knowledge of their medium are welcome to join this class. If you are uncertain or have questions, please contact .
