This class series explores the essentials of acrylic painting in representational work including taking and choosing a great reference photo, creating a strong still life composition, thumbnail sketching, value studies, color mixing, brush work and using perspective. This 4-day class series builds on previous lessons, and it is hoped that students can attend all sessions. The course is great for beginners as well as those with some painting experience or those looking to strengthen basic skills and concepts. Still Life and Simple Landscapes will be our muse.

Classes will build on each other and prepare students to enroll in Cathy’s more advanced class in Feb, April & May.

Bring to Class: Students will supply all materials including a sketch book, sketching tools, paint, brushes, pallet and painting surface of your choice. Some reference photos will be provided along with still life set up in class. Bring a phone with a camera or digital camera to take reference photos and document your progress. Cathy will share a materials list with enrolled students.
