2 weeks, Sunday, December 10th and 17th , 11-2pm
Instructor is David Caesar
Never painted before? No problem! This class will get you comfortable in the world of acrylic painting. We’ll start simple - creating a colour wheel and grey scale to get a handle on colour mixing and controlling saturation and tone. We’ll move on to copying very simple photographs - an apple, and basic landscapes. Touching on subjects such as light and shadow, atmospheric perspective and composition, our projects will get more complex as we move forward. David will be doing painting demonstrations and helping students problem-solve their way through their work. Students are welcome to bring in their own projects right from the start if they choose!
