Lessons

Beginning Drawing



Learn the fundamentals of drawing what you really “see”. You will learn how to use charcoal, pencil, pastels and pen & ink at your own pace using still life. This class uses geometric shapes to study light and shadow and moves on to more complex objects and their relationship in space. We concentrate on learning how to draw accurately which is the foundation for realistic painting.

Beginning Oil Painting:





1. Underpainting Study
Beginning students will learn about materials, studio practices and how to start and finish a tonal underpainting. The objective of this class is to get comfortable with the painting environment, painting tools and how to start a painting. Students will learn how to draw with paint and use only two colors to successfully finish a tonal study of light and shadow. This class uses geometric shapes to study light and shadow and moves on to more complex objects and their relationship in space. Once successfully completing the Underpainting class students are ready for the next class Limited Palette Tonal Study.
(All Levels – ages 15 and older)





2. Limited Palette Tonal Study
In this class students compose a still life and use a very limited palette to finish a tonal painting. Students learn how to compose a scene and work with lighting to create an interesting composition. They learn how to mix a limited palette and become aware of the tones that are possible as they finish a tonal study of their composition. (All Levels – ages 12 and older)
