This course will introduce you to the fundamentals of painting. Working primarily from direct observation of still life arrangements, as well as through demos and slide presentations, students will learn about painting materials, value, colour, composition and most importantly, how to forget what we think we know and paint what we see. One class in each session will be devoted to painting from life with a live model.
This course will be offered in two 5 week sessions. The second 5 week session can be taken on its own or to expand on the skills learned in the first. The course will be taught in oils but acrylic is welcomed.
