  • BRINGING REALITY TO CANVAS (ALL LEVELS):  This painting class will provide students of all skill levels time to work at their own pace while creating an oil painting from a photographic source. This class may be repeated.  Students are asked to bring a 5”x 7” photo for use on an 11” x 14” pre-stretched canvas.  (Ambitious students may try larger surfaces-i.e. 8” x 10” photo with a 16” x 20” canvas but must provide their own canvas.) Although reference photos that you have taken are preferred, it is a good idea to have several different photos with you at the start.  In some cases you may like a different sky, or trees or just want to combine several to make an image more unique or personal. In many cases, choosing a photo with larger shapes and good contrast from light to dark may be easier to translate.   All supplies for painting in oils will be provided. Students wishing to work in acrylics may bring their own paints and instruction will be provided as well.   Previous students can use time in class to complete any earlier oil paintings and begin a new work.

Supply Fee:  $10 – payable to Sean Butler, first day of class.  (Supply fee is waived if students have their own supplies.)
