Dear Continuing or Prospective Student:

[twocol_one]

Had a good response and a wonderful time teaching the Winter Albany Drawing with Pen, Ink & Brush Class and the evening Acrylics class.   Thanks to all who were able to participate!

Beginning in June, I will offer two Albany classes:  a special watercolor class at noon, Watercolor Tricks and Techniques, and again in the evening ,  Beginning/Continuing Painting with Acrylics.

As usual, anyone who is a returning student or who recruits a student to a class gets a free gift.  Advanced students or students who have taken previous classes with me can work independently in their choice of media in any class with individual help. Note: you do not have to be a “senior” to sign up for these classes.

If you are interested in one of these upcoming classes, please register as soon as you can, since classes must meet minimum enrollment in order to be held. Registration is sometimes possible at the class but only if enough students have registered before class start date, so the class does not cancel.

Beginning/Continuing Painting with Acrylic

Open to all levels and ages. Students will learn how to handle acrylic paint including how to mix colors, use of mediums, texture and washes, how to see values and build compositions. Initially learn to work acrylics like oil on canvas (thick and creamy), then like watercolor on paper. Beginning students will do exercises, and then can choose to paint abstracts, landscapes, botanical studies, still-lifes or other subjects of their choosing.

Continuing or advanced students can start on individual paintings in acrylics or in their choice of any painting or drawing media at first class, with instructor working with them individually. Basic drawing and composition as it relates to creating a painting will be taught to all including making a viewfinder and making working sketches in charcoal. Learn of easy, economical ways to mat and frame finished pieces.

Students are encouraged to create visual richness by developing the thought and feeling in their work. Students should bring any supplies they already have to first class where materials will be discussed and list handed out. Students supply their own paint, brushes & paper. $4 materials fee due at first class.
