This ongoing class will take you through the entire process from concept to completion of a painting. Julie gently helps you first paint what you see and eventually when you might let go. Most classes will begin with a demo, small discussion/lecture or sharing to increase your knowledge of all the aspects of art including drawing, value, and color. The instructor will use traditional oil paints, however students can also use water mixable oils or acrylics. Julie promotes learning to mix colors by use of a suggested limited palette (warm and cool primaries) as well as limited use of solvents and safe handling practices. Beginner student projects will be offered and eventually progress to help you find your own artistic voice. Students can use supplies from the instructor for a fee or use the supply list.
