Painting In Oils Or Acrylics

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

October 17-December 12
Pre-Registration is required. - Students may work with either oils or acrylics. Oils are the traditional painting media, which dry more slowly, allow subtle blending, clean up with turpenoid and are more expensive. Acrylics dry more quickly, are more difficult to achieve subtle blending, clean up with water and are less expensive. Beginning students will learn about selecting original, personal subject matter, using reference photographs, composition, use of materials, different ways of beginning a painting, and about techniques for setting up their palette, mixing color, painting, brushwork and expressing yourself. More advanced students will work more independently. The class will feature lectures, Q & A, demonstrations, individual instruction, and critiques.
