Expressive Painting From Photographs

James Griffin  B-A
Thursdays 2:30-5:00

Painting from photographs can be very exciting. The photograph can often take over, pushing out the artist’s sense of expression. For more than four decades I have worked from photos and have learned ways to get control over them, to
see into the photo and paint expressively from it. In this class you will learn how to scale up a photo and paint directly from it. No projectors or other gadgets are needed. When you learn to not be intimidated by the photographic image, beautiful
paintings can emerge!

Oil Painting With Expression

James Griffin  B-I
Thursdays 6:00-8:30

The sensual pleasure of oil painting is well known, but fewer know the amazing power of expression it is capable of. I’ll show you how to use the paint to find form and expression. In this class, students will work from a still life, using oil paints on canvas. James avoids the tedious to get painting quickly, with individual instruction throughout the class. Feel the joy of this wonderful medium!
