People are taking online painting lessons since the pandemic. But what happens when the painting needs help and you need advice? This for-all-levels class is what you might ask for: problem solving! Learn new skills and color combinations, explore realism, narrative, and abstracting away from a subject composition. Choose photos from your cell phone about your life and print them. In class, we start "alla prima:" we fill the canvas expressively at the beginning to capture ideas. Then we consider more slowly, and manipulate areas. With the help of a teacher guide you can learn to make choices that will give you rewarding results in painting, drawing, image-making and collage.
