For the absolute beginner and painters who want to improve their artistic skills in painting still life and landscapes with oil or acrylics. The focus of the class will be creating paintings either from the class options or from your own photo that help you learn how to see values (lights and darks) which make an object look authentic, what makes good composition and how to mix and apply paint to achieve a "painterly" surface. We will work on different painting techniques and you will learn color mixing with each small scale painting so you will paint several paintings in each session.
