This class is for artists wishing to improve their observation skills through proportion and perspective. This is not a drafting class, but rather a way for artists to develop problem-solving strategies for when they encounter these common problems in their work.

Painting 1 | Thursday Lily Cain 19U-2D-0019 Jun 6, 13, 20, 27 Jul 11, 18, 25 Aug 1 5:00 PM-8:00 PM Member $ 120.00 | Non-Member $ 145.00
This class is an introduction to the dynamics of painting and color theory through gouache. Do you find watercolors intimidating because of their delicacy? Do you love acrylics but they dry too fast? Meet gouache, your new best friend. Gouache is water-based and, like watercolor, uses water to become translucent but can be opaque like acrylic, and is very forgiving. Each week we will build a still life with different textures and colors that challenge our sense of depth and dimension. All levels welcome.

Following the demonstration, problem-solving and further application of demo topics will be reviewed through one-on-one interaction, culminating with a brief group critique.
