    Teaching Artist: Dorothy Hoeschen

    Beginning with the basics, students will delve into different aspects of oil painting each week and move ahead at their own pace. Handouts will give information, but the real learning happens when you are painting and that will be the goal. Landscape will be the focus, but a Still Life will be provided for those interested. When working indoors students will work from sketches and photos. But if weather permits, those who would like to (and have their own equipment) can paint outside on the beautiful Art Center grounds (en plein air). Students will learn about supplies, design, value, shape, color, texture, and more. A supply list will be provided once a roster of 3 students register.

    You can easily learn the basics while using acrylic paints! Students will complete a paint-along study the first 3 weeks with the instructor. Afterwards, bring your laptops to paint from your own uploaded photographs or images captured off the Internet. Of course, printed images are suitable for use as source material too. Students will explore traditional blocking-in methods while developing subject matter using expressive color, contrast and brushwork. After observing demonstrations, students will start off creating studies to learn basic techniques in color mixing and applications for building volume and space. The instructor will offer critiques to assist with constructive problem solving while exercising our vocabulary for the painting process. Supplies are provided by the student and a list will be sent one week prior to the start of class. The bulk of the investment of supplies will include paints, a few brushes, a canvas (first canvas provided). Level: Beginner thru Intermediate.

    This class is also offered Tuesdays, 6:30 - 9 pm.
