Classical Oil Painting with Lauren Andreach

Classical Oil Painting with Lauren Adreach February 2 – March 22 (8 weeks) Thursdays, 10am – 12noon  All levels, ages 18 & up Cost: $200 plus the price of materials

Learn a basic approach to chiaroscuro (“light-dark”) studio painting in oils. Learn to use classical composition, mix shadow color, mix local color, model form, master edgework, identify and correct common misperceptions of color value, and create the illusion of atmosphere in your paintings. Special focus will be on still life painting.

Students should bring still life or portrait work to the first class to establish working objectives. They will also be asked to save all class canvases to evaluate individual progress at the end of the 8-week session.
