Jun 20-Aug 22, 2012
Meets 6:00 PM-9:00 PM
Status: This class is completed
Calling all painters! Whether you use watercolor, oils, acrylic
or pastels you are welcome! This class is an open format
with instructor guidance to help push, inspire and challenge
your existing skills. Treated like an “independent study,”
students work on their own projects in their preferred media.
The instructor works with each student individually during
the three hour session helping and directing students. You
can be self-directed or with the instructor create a more
structured approach. Design, composition and color theory
are emphasized and used as tools to broaden the students’
aesthetic and creative comprehension. Class demonstrations
are done on an as needed basis so more time is devoted to
the individual. Since students are working in their preferred
media they are expected to have their supplies already. Be
prepared to begin the very first class discussing your ideas and
having a reference to work from.
