    Teaching Artist: Anne Gannon

    With individual guidance and instruction, learn how to refine your personal style while sharpening your painting skills. Various aspects of technique, color mixing and application are covered depending on what is needed to rework an old painting or start something new. Students use their own photos or an iPad for reference. A Still Life can be set up in class too. Oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal, graphite or ink... I can help in any medium. A setting like this keeps us inspired as we learn from each other! At the end of class everyone participates in a positive, constructive critique of the works that were done that day. This is for students with intermediate through advanced painting skills.

    You can easily learn the basics while using acrylic paints! Bring your laptops to paint from your own uploaded photographs or images captured off the Internet. Of course, printed images are suitable for use as source material too. Students will explore traditional blocking-in methods while developing subject matter using expressive color, contrast and brushwork. After observing demonstrations, students will start off creating studies to learn basic techniques in color mixing and applications for building volume and space. The instructor will offer critiques that assist in constructive problem solving while exercising our vocabulary for the painting process. Supplies are provided by the student and a list will be sent one week prior to the start of class. Level: Beginner thru Intermediate.

    This class is also offered Tuesdays, 6:30 - 9 pm.

    Teaching artist: Nancy Shill

    This class will be playful and informative. We will seek to help you express your individuality with an abstract approach. There will be demonstrations, exercises and critiques. We will learn to add depth through layering and adding paint to paper or paper to paint. We'll consider using papers and a wide variety of different materials to bring texture into our work. We want to help you to loosen up in this style and in other more formal styles that you may pursue.
