Fall Term: Portrait Painting

Portrait Painting with Megan Ward
Monday 1:00 - 4:00 pm

No Classes during Thanksgiving, Oct 8, 2018.

This course guides beginner- and intermediate-level painters in skill-building and learning practical portraiture techniques. Students may work with either oils or acrylics and will receive instruction specific to the medium of choice. By tackling multiple projects, students will gain an understanding of how to select and create good reference photos, as well as experience in translating their images onto canvas. We’ll also explore modes of expression through colour, composition, and paint application. For those who have never used oil paints before, acrylics are the recommended option. Class discussion and demos will be supplemented with handouts.

Fall Term: Watercolour Painting II (Wed Aft)

Watercolour Painting II with Sharon Taylor
Wednesday 1 pm - 4 pm

If you are looking for more instruction and experience in watercolour painting but don't feel ready for the advanced class this is the venue for you. We will take up where we left off from the Beginners class but with more emphasis on composition, working from life and from photos.  This will give you the opportunity to paint landscapes as you gain more experience handling watercolours. Sharon will demonstrate new techniques, the principles of good composition, how to work from a still life set up, cropping photos and developing thumbnail sketches.
