What we offer:

This fun and intensive 10 week class will welcome beginning and intermediate Adult students alike to explore several different painting mediums, review their technical application, and practice several iterations of painting to help improve their chops. We will cover a lot of painterly-territory, and learn how water-based mediums relate with a logic of applied-thinking that can be used to create a variety of effects in picture making. Our instructor will offer a mix of technical demonstrations and playful low-pressure projects in a casual atmosphere designed to help you achieve certain painterly applications for each medium, and strengthen you familiarity and skill of painting.
