Karen Wray, Instructor

This class is ideal for the absolute beginner or for those who want to learn the fundamentals of painting. We use oil as a medium because it is very forgiving, dries slowly, and blends easily. Students will learn about the materials, brushes, and surfaces/supports, how to mix paints to make the desired color, brush techniques, how to create the illusion of a 3D form on a 2D surface using values, basic drawing and simple composition, and some atmospheric perspective. Instructor will use demonstrations and discussion, in addition to student’s hands-on experience to introduce basic concepts. You will never see everyday things the same way again!
