• Absolute Beginners
  • Painting

This course teaches foundation skills in the technical manipulation of paint, as well as in colour, structure, and content. The importance of direct visual observation and the creation of space and light illusion will be stressed. The instructor will also show how the same procedures can be used for work of an abstract or wholly imaginative nature. Thorough demonstrations of the materials to be used in the course will be given, and paintings will be small so that one project can be completed in each class. Media: Acrylic or oil paint.
