Painting should be fun and an outlet for your creative energy, and you should feel safe to learn in an environment that is helpful and encouraging and NOT judgmental or stressful. This is the place for that! Angela will give you some ideas on how to get started in this versatile medium, helping you to feel more confident through the skills you will be practicing and the tools you’ll get to know.
This five week series will walk you through the elements of creating a series of subject matter in oil or acrylic. The first class will go over the basics of the materials and then you'll paint a simple still life from a photo. (Artist will provide images to use in class). The second class will focus on landscapes, which we will begin and complete in the third week.
Students will then begin a floral painting which will be completed in the fourth week. The last week, we will discuss portraits and the figure, and how the elements from the previous weeks go in to adding a human element to your work. Plenty of images will be provided for students to work on in their own time during class, so even if a student is fast at completing their painting, they will be able to start a new one while others work at their own pace.
In the new September/October 5-week series, Angela will change it up with new & different subject matter, and can be taken by any of Angela's previous students without repetition of class material.
What you can expect to learn:
What to wear: clothes that can get stained.
What to bring: a smile and your painting supplies.
If you are interested in taking less than all five sessions in this class, please call the gallery anytime Monday through Saturday, 10am-6pm, to discuss this. In some cases this will be allowed, and we reserve the right to make that decision. We don't want students to miss out on all the material this instructor plans to offer, nor to have anyone miss the beginning sessions which are foundational for those sessions that follow. If you have taken this class previously, and just want to drop in for a session you'd like to repeat, we offer this option at $60 per session. Please call the gallery at 425.697.2787 to see if this is an option, depending on space available.
