Class Description

  • Are you new to painting, or coming back after an extended break
  • Want a “fast start” to get your painting going in the right direction?
  • Interested in taking a workshop but not sure if you are “ready”?


In this concentrated “crash” course of fundamentals, we will discuss what we think are the most important elements of painting: composition, color, and value. We will also talk about all the different tools artists use, that way you’ll be able to decide what you need or what you are missing in your artist toolbox. And…you will even get to paint, so you can put into practice right away what you learned during this well-rounded class.

We know that having a firm foundation will help you get on the path to successful painting!

Advance registration is required. Limited Seating Available.
