Calling all oil and acrylic painters! Please join us for an exploration and discovery into the fine art medium of oil and acrylic painting. All levels welcome as we will build on basic skills to develop your unique and creative expression.

We will look at the painting practices of contemporary and historical artists to learn from the great wealth of the past while engaging in a current conversation of what it is to be an artist today.

Class will include looking at and discussing other fine artists, painting demonstrations, in addition to individual and group critiques. Subjects of color, value, line, texture, and composition will be revisited to encourage and promote personal language and style. We will also look at contemporary practices and methods to expand our ability to express your vision.

Emphasis will be on working with each artist to discover and work towards their personal artistic vision and goals.

This is a 9-week class.
