In this painting class we will discuss the materials of painting, including supports, brushes, mediums and qualities of paint. Students will practice color mixing, value scales and learn different ways of applying paint. With still life as our subject, we will explore composition, space, color and light. Later in the semester, we will work from photographs of your choice. This class includes demonstrations and looking at various artist's work. Although this class is open to all levels, some drawing experience would be helpful.
