New Oil and Acrylic Class

Painting:  Observation and Process

with Sherie Harkins

Tuesdays:  March 9, 16 and 23   4-6pm via online link

Tuition:  $105 Members/ $115 Non-Members

Painting is only partially about talent – mostly it is about experience, knowledge, and practice. Those who paint more become better painters. Seeing is like that too, and because we are all unique, we can help one another by sharing what we observe. We will discuss what to look for, methods to assist in seeing accurately, and common mistakes. Participants will have the opportunity to share and get feedback from one another as we go through the process of translating our observations into paintings.  Sherie will be demonstrating primarily in oil but participants are welcome to work in acrylic if that is a preferred medium.  Images will be supplied. Participants are encouraged to work between the sessions and share their progress during the live meetings for feedback and mutual benefit.
