Draw & Paint: Advanced Studio
This class is for students who wish to further their drawing & painting skills while investigating, visualizing and developing a personal body of work. Students will refine their technical skills, expand their knowledge of materials and process, and benefit from individual instruction, group critiques and lectures on classical and contemporary studio practices. Students should bring their current works in progress and their preferred medium to class.

9:00 am – 12:00 pm, 11 sessions
Painting: Contemporary Landscape
This class will cover the basic foundations of landscape painting with a focus on atmospheric perspective, accurate color mixing, composition, and photo interpretation. Through demonstrations, individual instruction, group critiques, and lectures on the history of landscape painting to the present, students will be encouraged to find their own per- sonal direction as they create contemporary works of art. Both oil and acrylic painters are welcome.
Fridays, April 15 – May 20

Painting: Contemporary Portrait in Oil
This class will cover the basic foundations of portraiture from a live model. With an emphasis on form, light and shadow, accurate color mixing, proportion and composition, students will hone their observational skills to capture not only the likeness of their subject, but to express the character. Throughout the course, students will receive individual instruction, and will benefit from demonstrations, group critiques, and lectures on both classical and contemporary portraiture. This class uses a clothed, live model.
