Service Description

Have you always wanted to learn how to draw or paint, but didn't know where to start? Well, this Fall I am offering small intimate art classes for beginners in the relaxed setting of my private studio. Each student will be guided through acrylic painting exercises in this 8 week session. Classes will meet once per week for 1.5 hours. Students will learn: • How to recognize and organize 2-D shapes on the paper or canvas through their relationship to each other, • How to turn 2-D shapes into simple 3-D forms line and shading, then crafting the different simple forms together to create complex forms, • How to use a diversity of tools and materials, • How to create space and depth within a 2-D surface, • How to mix colors and basic color theory, • An awareness of movement and rhythm within the subject and between the elements, • How to use the elements and principles of design to create aesthetically pleasing compositions • That practicing is important and fundamental to growth as an artist.
