Tuition $75 (Class size will be limited.)
This workshop is for the artist with some experience using oil paints. (Contact us for Beginner Level options.) Enjoy expert instruction from a personable, professional “Paint Coach.” Improve your composition skills, learn new techniques, cultivate proper care of materials, and use a palette including only Titanium White, Yellow Ochre, Lemon Yellow, Permanent Alizaron Crimson, Burnt Sienna, Cobalt Blue, and Ultramarine Blue.
You will complete one or more “cloud study” paintings during the workshop. Please bring your own painting materials including oil paints (colors above or their equivalent), brushes, palette or palette paper, pointy palette knife for mixing, small brush cleaning tub of Odorless Mineral Spirits, Weber Liquiglaze Natural Oil medium (available at Hobby Lobby and online) and one or more 11 x 14 canvas panels. You will be asked to stand at the easel while painting. So please come comfortably attired with your own apron or “paint-ready” clothing. Registrants will receive additional details about suggested brushes and toning your canvas before the workshop.
Known for being a difficult medium, Danielle Festa will introduce techniques that take the fear out of watercolor painting. This course is designed for both seasoned artists who have an interest in exploring new methods and those who have never picked up a brush.
Leave with a better understanding of watercolors and a finished still life painting!
