This program is designed for young artists who love painting and who want to deepen and develop their skills. The class explores painting in acrylics, watercolors, and tempera with attention to the use of color, light, shadow, composition, and brush handling. Students will work from still life arrangements or favorite photographs. The teacher will provide frequent demonstrations. Students will also draw inspiration from the art on view in the galleries. Children are encouraged to repeat this class to continue building painting skills.
