Whether you're a beginner looking to develop good habits or more experienced and looking to break some bad ones, this class can help. While demystifying the oil painting process, you'll work from direct observation to develop greater hand-to-eye coordination. Basically, “see it, paint it”. You will also learn step-by-step methods of color mixing, making form by blending, and many of the do's and don't s of composition. “Remember, oil painting is a simple process but not necessarily an easy one. Nothing worthwhile ever is.” Call for materials list. Check out Ski’s blog at http://skiholm.blogspot.com

Explore the fascinating art of portrait drawing or painting! Beginners and intermediate students will work from a live model, focusing on observational skills and applying them to drawing what they see. Tom will give short lessons on the structure of the face and then will give help to each student as they spend the rest of the class drawing or painting. Students should feel comfortable in whatever medium they choose since the emphasis will be on the process of creating portraits. Call for a materials list.
Eric will help students understand how their digital camera works, and how to better understand the various functions. Topics include shooting modes, understanding Shutter Speed, Aperture & ISO, Composition, Rule of Thirds, White Balance, Shooting Indoors & Outdoors, and other topics. Class time, as well as hands-on time with the students’ own cameras, will be available. This class is a basic course for beginners and for people with a little experience. Bring your camera and manual to class (if you still have it!)
