A TASTE FOR POSSIBILITIES!
March 28 - May 9, 2018
(No Class on April 11)
12:30pm - 3:30pm every Wednesday
COURSE DESCRIPTION: We'll have fun while expanding our horizons! We'll do quick studies and long. Sometimes we'll paint upside down! Yes, it really works! We'll pay attention to massing details for greater impact, exploring dramatic values, line and shape, color subtleties and color vibrancy using a range of full color and neutrals.
The course objective is to step outside our comfort zones in order to bring something new to our work.
LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced
