This course will teach you how to use tools and techniques to enable you to paint expressive paintings using Oils or Acrylics.  During the six (6) week course you will complete at least two paintings. Working with the same “Still Life” over three sessions, you will learn how to paint from observation, measure, and use paint to bring the composition to life.  Whilst we use the genre of “Still Life”, the techniques and methods learned can be used for other genres such as portraiture, landscapes and figurative.

Students will learn:

How to use the comparative method to capture the composition
How to use a limited palette of colors
How to handle paint and edge control
How to use value and color to create a convincing impression of light
Technical information regarding materials

Students should have a basic understanding of painting techniques, as well as some practical experience and be prepared to use an easel either standing or sitting down. Prior experience of painting “Still Life” is welcomed but not a pre-requisite.
