Description:
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.

In this 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.

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 painting from a photo of architecture. (Artist will provide images to use in class).
  • The second class will focus on landscapes, including the water of lakes or oceans.
  • The third week will focus on how to paint water in a glass, with transparency and reflection.
  • The fourth topic will be animals, learning how the elements from the previous weeks add to your work. 
  • The fifth topic, if there is time, will be night scenes.

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.

What you can expect to learn:

  • What kinds of brushes make what kind of marks, and what brands to buy
  • Helpful tools to aid you in getting drawing, values, and colors right
  • Where to begin and how to move forward without getting “stuck”
  • How to layer your paint without making mud

What to wear: clothes that can get stained.

What to bring: a smile and your painting supplies.

NOTE:
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.
