About this event


We're sorry, but this course is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, June 14, 2022.

Large Scale Painting Instructor: Anatoliy Shapiro

Students will receive step-by-step instruction on how to create a large painting from
pictures and sketches. Image 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, 30 x 40 inches, or larger. Bring your ideas, references, such as
photographs and/or sketches to the FIRST class. Students in the BBAC facility are
required to wear a mask at all times.
