Oil Painting with Ski Holm

April 25, 2019
Ski Holm by 1:00pm, Return by 4:00pm



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      

Soft Focus Landscapes on Clayboard

April 26, 2019
Amy Lindenberger by 10:00pm, Return by 3:00pm


Colored pencil is known for being very detail-oriented, but not so much for its painterly qualities. Amy will share her technique which uses powdered graphite, followed by layers of colored pencil, graphite and solvent, to create a finished product with the look of a painting that can be varnished and framed without glass! More experienced students can work on their own projects in an open studio setting with Amy’s instruction and advice. Call for materials list.
