Join us for this fun and easy, step-by-step class, suited for any level – whether you’ve never painted before, or you’ve dabbled a bit, or all the way to intermediate students – all are welcome. If you have wanted to paint with oils or acrylics didn’t know where to start, then this class is for you! 

David will teach a simplified approach to painting using landscape as the subject matter. You will learn to break down the scene into basic shapes, values and colors. He will begin demonstrating a painting and then have you follow along with his guidance in a step-by-step approach. We will use a fairly limited palette and go over the basics of color mixing. David will provide photo reference material but you may bring your own as well. The class will be a combination of demonstrations and personal instruction to help you gain confidence as you work on your own paintings. 

David will be painting in oils but students may work in either oils or acrylics. Acrylic artists are encouraged to use retarding medium and/or mix in open acrylics to extend drying time.

For intermediate and beginning or inexperienced painters. Don’t be intimidated or put it off any longer!  This will be fun and encouraging class.
