Have fun painting faces and figures in this informative class. Learn about spatial relationships in figures & portraits to improve the quality of your paintings! Can either copy a master artist or paint from your own photo. You will be guided with both group and personalized instruction.

All levels (highly recommend beginners take the 4-class foundation course)

o Enjoy creating art in a shared environment

o Paint a canvas in your style or the style of master painter

o Develop painting skills, styles and techniques

o Practice eye-hand coordination through observation

Supplies are not included. Will need at least primary paint colors plus black and white.

Prefer a 16 x 20 canvas, palette, brushes, paper towels and a water cup.

Supplies can be purchased locally at Michaels, Hobby Lobby or online.

Basic supplies are provided for an additional $10 – includes a 16 x 20 canvas.

(Please let me know by Tuesday Dec 6th if you need supplies)

I will provide handouts and reference photos however prefer you use your own photos so that you find something you really enjoy painting. It’s also easier to paint details if you download an image to your phone or pad and zoom in. Also try to bring paint colors that reflect the color palette that you will be using.
