This is a great course for anyone who would like to learn the basics and build their painting confidence through fun foundational exercises in color mixing, creating form, and value studies. You’ll also learn how to apply paint through layering, glazing and brush techniques.

This course is suitable for beginners and for those who would like to brush up on their painting skills. For those students that would like continue with the basic class or for those that would like to work in a group setting with feedback from the instructor, this workshop will accommodate all levels.

Beginners will learn the following:
