Learn contemporary and classical methods of painting. Work will be done from a still life set-up. If desired, students can also paint from photographs. This class will focus on how to begin and finish a painting. Starting with toning the canvas and drawing your subject, students will quickly follow with layering light and shadow colors to block in value and color. This will be followed with refinements to the drawing, value, color and edges in a series of thick paint and thin glazes. Recommended for artists who want to improve the realistic appearance of their work. The first class will be a painting demonstration by Vicki. Materials should be brought to the second class. Adults and teens welcome. All skill levels welcome.
