220-Afternoon Oil Landscape

This course enables students to explore their own creativity and the process of oil painting, emphasizing the elements of composition, light, color and accurate representation of form as they work from personal photos or sketches. The class will showcase master and contemporary artists’ works illustrating essential painting techniques, and ‘live’ demonstrations will help the student learn the painting process.
Students will share weekly progress of their own paintings with an individual critique during each class. Students should possess basic drawing skills and have experience mixing colors.

NOTE: There is no class on 5/3
