Artists work from the still life to hone their skills and to train their eyes to see the subtle shifts in value and color temperature. This class starts with the basics of still life painting; value sketching, sighting or gauging measurements, and color theory, then dives a little deeper with dramatic lighting effects like candlelight and low key painting. Learn how to paint reflective metal and textures like smooth, shiny porcelain, transparent glass, and rough fruit skin. Class is open to any medium, instructor will demonstrate in pastel. Recommended for Intermediate and Advanced.

Learn the same way the Old Masters learned, and how they taught their apprentices. Students will start with basic composition skills by working from direct observation. Draw your subject, then paint it. Learn traditional skills like sight-size drawing, color mixing and color theory, color temperatures and values, and study how light falls on objects and people. This class is progressive, starting with basics like shape and form, then brush skills and exercises to learn the purpose of different brushes, and working from limited palette, and grisaille (painting in shades of gray). Practice tonality by painting shapes and blocks then translating that to complex shapes like seashells and still life. Work from Caravaggio’s values and chiaroscuro painting, Rembrandt’s edges and forms, Sorolla’s color temperature, and DaVinci’s proportions. Perfect class for a motivated beginner who wants to learn the skills to paint and develop their own style. Students will be working on easels in this class.
Ages 17 and up.

Cadena, Elizabeth

In this messy, experimental class, we’ll explore the fun and very addicting technique of “dirty pours” and “flip cup” acrylic pours. The results look like marble or even planets, when poured onto circular supports. Learn how to create “cells” within your pours.

This class includes a ton of paints, pouring mediums and several supports (canvases, etc.), and you will finish the day with at least 3 small finished pieces. All supplies included! Ages 17 and up.
