About the Event

(Classes on Thursdays, Consults on Mondays)

There will be the option for signing up for:

  •  additional two week class only (Live class only is $75, or $100 to have access to the class & consult recordings).

OR

  • The additional four weeks ($150 for the Live class, or $200 to have access to the class and consult recordings)

After the past month together, we will talk more about some things we didn't have time for. 

  • Looking more at composition, some tips on it and things to avoid
  • More about COLOR!  
  • Texture and palette knife (and painting thin to thick)
  • Brushwork (why understanding brushstroke economy is important, stroke texture and direction and why it is important)
  • How to avoid focusing too much on a subject (but rather just the lines, colors, shapes, etc of the subject) For example, you aren't painting a cloud, you are painting colors and forms that make up a cloud)
  • Detail: when it is important, when it is distracting and how to know the difference

You will need:

  • Access to reliable internet signal on a device with a screen large enough to see details.  I recommend using the Google Chrome browser. You'll want to make sure your microphone and camera are functioning.
  • Titanium White, Ivory Black, Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow paints (but since I know you all have more than these colors you can be prepared to use more) (acrylic or oil, or waterbased oil)
  • Palette Knife
  • a palette suited to the kind of paints you will be using
  • rags or paper towels for cleanup
  • Painting surfaces 
  • Paintbrushes (I'll be using small, medium and large flat brushes, and round brushes size 2/3) but have whatever you might be comfortable on hand. If you aren't sure what you are comfortable with, no problem! Have a selection on hand so you can figure that out!
  • Water in a jar (for acrylic users) or solvent (for oil users)
  • A desire to have some fun painting!

Will this class be useful for artists with varrying skill levels?

Every skill level is welcome to join this class!  My experience is that we are all learners.  I enjoy teaching and sharing the process and skills that I have so far experienced.  But no matter how many times I have painted a subject, every single time I learn something new and advance in my journey.  I know from experience that some practical tools in the toolbox can go a long way in increasing my confidence as I approach the canvas.  It's my goal that at the end of this class, you have put some new tools in your tool box or perhaps just gained some confidence to use the ones you already knew you had!

How about my kids? Can they join?

While it makes my heart happy to see kids experience the arts, this class is designed for adult or at least high school aged artists.

Will this class be recorded so I can watch it later?

There will be the option for signing up for:

  •  additional two week class only (live only is $75, or $100 to have access to the class & consult recordings).

OR

  • The additional four weeks ($150 for the live class, or $200 to have access to the class and consult recordings)
