This course will be broken up into two, five week sessions. Session 1 will focus on fundamentals of painting. Using a direct ala prima approach, we will explore concepts of observations, using light, shadow, value and color to create representational oil painting from still-life’s and photographic reference. The emphasis will be on demonstrations and exercises designed to build your painting technique and skill. In Session 2 (please register for this class separately), students will choose the subject matter of their paintings as we build upon fundamental concepts. Instruction will be individualized to help facilitate personal painting goals. Students would sign up for each Session independently. A Suggested Materials List will be available by contacting the office. Taught by Frank DePietro Monday Nights, 6-9PM Session 1, 5 classes 15 hours total Don't forget to register for Session 2 now!
