sample of a "realism" project for the class
I will be teaching an oil painting class for youth, ages 11-16 through the City of Glendale beginning April 2. The class meets on Mondays from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm for eight weeks (April 2-May 21) at the Foothills Recreation Center. Projects will take two to three sessions to complete, so that each student can create three projects in total for his or her portfolio. Projects will include realism to abstract; impressionist landscapes, and painting from observation.
This class offers students with or without painting experience the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of painting with oils and of drawing. Students will use a limited color palette and learn painting techniques, including color mixing, paint application, and color theory. Working from observation and photo references, students will explore the possibilities of oils and the concepts of color, composition, and perception.Comment on or Share this Article →
