About this event


Painting: Large Scale
Instructor: Anatoliy Shapiro

Students will receive step-by-step instruction on how to create a large painting from pictures and sketches. Images will be projected on canvas using an overhead projector, enabling larger-scale proportions for painting. Composition will be discussed and students will acquire a better understanding of methods, color and value as it applies to their work. Painting media can include latex, acrylic and oil and should paint on stretched canvas, 24 x 36 inches, or larger. Bring your ideas, references, such as photographs and/ or sketches to the FIRST class.
