Intermediate/Advanced Painting with Dan Mackerman

Tuesday afternoons in July – August
Dan Mackerman

This course is designed for intermediate and advanced painting students who wish to broaden their knowledge and experience. Work on your own projects while taking advantage of Dan’s 40+ years of painting. The purpose of this class is to improve upon what you already know, expose you to new possibilities and to make you a better painter. For some that may mean inspiring conversation on topics that relate to your work. For others it may mean tips or demos on materials and tools that fine-tune your technique or improve a specific piece.

Solvent-free oil painting dating back to the time of Rembrandt is highlighted but any opaque media such as pastel or acrylic are also welcome.
