Learning to See: Painting for Beginners (Oil or Acrylic)
Instructor: Milena Spasic
May 28 - June 25
Thursdays, 10 am - 1 pm EST
Beginning painters and those who wish to continue developing their foundational skills are welcome to join this class. Students will be guided in setting up and lighting simple still lifes in their own interior spaces. Instruction in beginning a painting and attention to tonal contrasts, shape relationships, and basic color relationships will be covered. The materials, tools, and techniques of paint application will also be addressed. Those new to painting will begin with very limited color palettes, while those with some experience may move to a more expansive group of colors. Demos and examples will be included, as well as group and individual feedback. The class will be taught live through Zoom, with additional resources provided through either email or Google Classroom. Instructions for using Zoom will be sent prior to the class.
