Open Studio/Realism Class

This painting class will provide students of all skill levels time to work at their own pace while creating a painting or drawing from their own photographic source. The medium you choose to work in is up to you – oils, acrylics, or pastels. During this class we will talk about basic composition, how to approach a subject in a simple manner, and work realistically while creating a unique and personal painting for a variety of skill levels. Reference pictures that you have taken are preferred (although not required – originality and copyright and two areas we will discuss in the first class).
