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 great ideas on how to get started in these versatile mediums, 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 oil or acrylic, covering these themes: Drawing, Values, Color, Design, and Edges. Each class will go over the basics of one theme for that week with a demonstration by the artist, and then you'll paint an image that highlights that theme from a photo. Plenty of photos will be provided by Angela will provide images to work on in class, so if a student is fast at competing their painting, they will be able to start a new one while others work at their own pace. (If you’d like to use your own photos, please contact Angela in advance to discuss.)  

What you can expect to learn:
