Learning to draw and paint opens up an amazing and colorful world. It can be both fun and rewarding and also frustrating when you don’t have the skills to paint or draw what you want. That is where we come in...
We have structured this foundation drawing & painting class so that many different skill levels from absolute beginner to intermediate artist can participate. Start the class with basic drawing & painting exercises along with explaining your materials and how to use them to achieve ultimate results. We will spend time drawing & painting the basic forms from life using direct lighting to help you understand value. You will learn how to see these same basic forms when you draw & paint more complex objects. You will learn about proper proportions and relationships. We will cover eye level and foundation perspective, explore line and values, direct lighting and cast shadows as well as soft and hard edges. You will be given lots of one on one instruction with plenty of demonstrations to guide you through the different elements of good painting.
Do you have specific portfolio requirements? Let us know and we will gladly work with you to achieve your goals.
