This class is designed to guide students to find their inner artist and explore conscious and subconscious ideas – much like painters throughout history have found inspiration. The class is suitable for all levels and includes basic instruction for using oil paints as well as composition, subject matter, and concepts. Supply list below, some materials provided. Please come with all of the materials on the list, and not just the paint and brushes. A pallette or pallette paper of at least 8”x10” is important, as are rags.
