This beginner to intermediate level painting class is geared towards knowledge of painting alongside color theory. We will explore some basic but vital principals of color. More experienced students are welcome to bring their own subject matter to work from. Group critiques and discussions will be an essential part of the class; a time for us to get to know each other, what we do and why we are compelled to make art. This painting class is designed for both oil and acrylic painters.
