Whatever subject matter you like to draw or paint - spinning will free your subconscious abilities! Spinning refers to turning the paper, canvas, metal, wood or other surface at 90 degree angles while applying the oil, acrylic, watercolor, pencil, charcoal or other medium. Taking your favorite work of art and hanging it upside down may reveal an entirely new piece.

Intermediate and advanced students will learn approaches in abstracted (non-local) color. Using palettes that began with the Fauves and Post-Impressionists and that continue to be widely used today, students will put into practice color theory by exploring the flatness of the picture plane and enjoying color, the most versatile element of design. Looking at some of the masters of Modern art for inspiration, intermediate and advanced students will work with oil paints that they already have but will be encouraged to explore a range of new hues. No black paint allowed!

Painting outside is like taking a mini vacation. You become immersed in the beauty of nature, sunlight, atmosphere and colors that cannot be reproduced in photographs. In this class we will be painting trees, foliage, grasses, sky, clouds, aerial perspective, etc. After beginning the paintings outside we will use photographs to complete the paintings in the studio.
