Students Choice Watercolors or Acrylics

Three Week Session

This class is designed to encourage students to Loosen Up.

If you are tired of tediously painting every leaf, every hair, every blade of grass,

This is the class for you. I have never ever had a student ask me to help them tighten up. Instead it’s the other way around, “I want to loosen up” “My paintings look too tight”. If you’re saying, yup that’s me…then this is the class for YOU!

It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or seasoned painter YOU Will Loosen UP!

Through painting exercises targeting your specific needs without sacrificing the integrity of your painting or style.

Come, have fun, no pressure.

Just bring your regular art supplies. Watercolors or Acrylics it’s up to you.

Do Your Own Thing With Instruction 22e

Date: August 3rd, 2022 - September 7th, 2022

Time: 3:30 PM- 5:30 PM

Duration: 6-Week

Minimum 4 / Maximum 10

This Class is for intermediate and advanced students (ages 18 and up) whose work may require a second look. Good art starts in your brain as a concept: how do you approach that blank canvas? What’s the mood of the painting? What’s the medium, are you open to the challenge of a different medium?

In answering those questions, others will arise: Is the drawing correct?, did I consider color harmony and mood? Do I need help with color mixing? Is my focal point clear? Do the values play light against dark? How do line and edges play together? Is there a different way to approach the subject?

Students bring their own materials and reference material. 
Reference material is available as well as a different still life every week
This is a relaxed atmosphere where students encourage each other and enjoy each other’s accomplishments.

Paint new paintings using watercolors or acrylics or just Re-invent those not so great paintings. You know the ones, we all have them, stuffed in a box in the closet or under the bed.

It’s time to bring them out of hiding. Add some more paint, maybe crop, add some collage with tissues or heck use them as collage material over other paintings. The process is fun and creative without the stress of painting a new work of art.

Things to bring to class:

Yup those Yucky paintings of course, LOL…
Matt Medium, old brush for applying medium. Tissue papers/napkins
Along with your watercolor or acrylic supplies.

Wednesdays, This Class is for intermediate and advanced students (ages 18 and up) whose work may require a second look. Good art starts in your brain as a concept: how do you approach that blank canvas? What’s the mood of the painting? What’s the medium, are you open to the challenge of a different medium?

In answering those questions, others will arise: Is the drawing correct?, did I consider color harmony and mood? Do I need help with color mixing? Is my focal point clear? Do the values play light against dark? How do line and edges play together? Is there a different way to approach the subject?

Students bring their own materials and reference material. 
Reference material is available as well as a different still life every week
This is a relaxed atmosphere where students encourage each other and enjoy each other’s accomplishments.

Painting on Masa/Rice Paper - Watercolor or Acrylic

Lose and unpredictable, this style of painting is done on unsized masa / rice paper. The paper is dipped in water then crumpled lightly into a ball. This is where the interesting lines come from. The paper is then carefully un-crumpled and laid out onto a flat surface. After blotting up excess water it’s ready for the first layer of paint….Sumi Ink is a good medium to start with. During the paint layering process the paper is glued to 140lb. watercolor paper.
