CAPTURING THE IMPRESSION
NEW SESSION STARTING SEPTEMBER 5
In this six week class we will cover techniques to help you loosen up and create paintings with more expression and personal style. Using photos and still life, we will practice interpreting our subjects, not just copying. We'll begin with gestural drawing and move into design using strong shapes and values to create dramatic compositions. Finally, learn how to create beautiful color harmonies, texture and variety.
All levels are welcome and you can work in oils, acrylic or pastels. Class size is limited to 5 students.

WEEKLY MENTORING CLASSES
For artists who would like an ongoing weekly painting session where they can work on their own ideas, at their own pace, I am happy to offer Weekly Mentoring Classes at ArtSpace. I will be working on my own projects as well as helping students during this time and you can join me in painting from the occasional model or still life set up. Email me to be put on the list for these special sessions.
