3. STILL LIFE: Edibles and More - in the STUDIO, 3 weeks, $150

4. PORTRAITS of People – in the STUDIO, 3 weeks, $150

For those who have completed the Beginner course. 

Painting a portrait is not as difficult as you might think.

We’ll learn the principles of facial structure, practice techniques 

by painting a ‘random’ face, then learn to trace a photo carefully 

to capture the likeness of a real person you want to paint.

Lots of examples:   https://www.pinterest.com/jiaconetti/1-wc-zoom-portraits/

Tuesdays, Jan. 24, 31, Feb. 7 - from 6 to 8:30 pm

 

5. NEW CLASS:  LANDSCAPE: IMPROVE YOUR COLOR, VALUES, and COMPOSITION   

in the STUDIO, 3 weeks, $150

Intermediate level - for those who have taken the Beginner class at least once.

If you'd like to take your skills to the next level, this class will focus on what separates 

a "nice" painting from a dramatic one. Using the techniques you're already familiar with, and 

simple subject matter (both landscape and still life), we'll explore the simple rules of how to 

DESIGN a painting with interesting cropping, composition, and color...rather than 

just "I made a nice copy of this photograph."

Happy to send some examples via text or email if you're curious.

Tuesdays, Feb. 14, 21, 28 - 6 pm till 8:30 pm  

6. NEW ZOOM CLASS:  BIRDS & BUTTERFLIES  on ZOOM, 3 weeks, $120

For all levels, even newbies. Bright and colorful birds and butterflies, 

done in various simple techniques. Tracings will be sent before class.
