NEW! Oil Painting for Young Adults (ages 10 and up)
Sue Barrasi $200
This class will teach principles of traditional oil painting while giving each student individual instruction so they can achieve confidence as they learn and explore the world of classical painting. Emphasis will be on painting directly from life as students will learn to "see" the beauty of the prismatic flow of light. Topics covered: Materials: Setting up an "organized" palette and care of tools. Composition: Simplify into basic shapes, mapping out, horizon lines, focal point. Emphasizing Atmosphere: Attention to prismatic effect as light flows over form. Block in: Value, contrast, massing in light, shapes and modeling forms. Simplification: Keeping things simple, emphasize seeing basic shapes, correcting values. Color mixing: Color harmonies and awareness of warm and cool tones. Edges: Attention to and creating descriptive edges, hard vs soft. A materials list will be sent upon registration.
