Join us for the Paint It Forward Movement. Class and Materials are supplied Free of Charge. During the 3rd Class, I invite you to Pay If Forward and Donate what you can so that another artist may share in this experience. All donations go towards funding materials for future budding Artists. This Class will teach all of the basics including:
In the 4 weeks we will touch on
1. The tools of the trade - brush care, paints, mediums, varnishes, papers, etc.
2. Creating shape and form- the 4 basic shapes in painting.
3. Is drawing important? Anyone can paint but drawing is a skill that needs developing.
4. Basics of landscape - Background, middle ground and foreground
5. Colour theory. 6. Oh and did I mention we will actually paint... I will just slip some of the other stuff in And we will love what we paint... I promise!
