About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, August 17, 2021.

Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10 - 11:30 AM
July 8th - August 17th 6 Weeks

Using their medium of choice, students will apply the principles and elements of design – shape, value, color, edge, and more – to create sustained works in both abstract and realistic paintings. We will use a methodical approach to planning and organizing paintings, including modifying reference photos, simplifying, and analyzing designs, and refining initial ideas.

Supply List: Use your medium of choice: watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, or digital.

For the abstract exercises, I recommend working on a large ground 22x30 or larger.

Miscellaneous Supplies: sketchbook, pencils, grayscale markers, tracing paper, a couple of colored pencils
