Painting Classes

Painting With A Loose Brush

Lucy Barber B-A
Wednesdays 5:30 – 8:00pm

This exciting class is about seeing color, experimenting with paint application, building composition, and breathing life into a painting. Carefully observing color in still life set-ups, students place “spots” of color in loose patches of paint. Techniques for mapping out a composition with shapes will aid when starting to “draw” with paint. Through frequent one-on-one demonstrations, discussion, and in-studio practice, students will experience a sense of creative play, will be inventive, and have fun in the process. You will see progress in your work! Beginning and experienced painters are welcome; a working knowledge of drawing, color, and oil paints is helpful. Acrylics are welcome too.
