Painting Techniques
Ongoing Class – Register anytime

For beginners through advanced students of painting. This practice-based class helps you understand the logic of colour interactions – what works and what doesn’t work in paintings. Each week has a clear theme which is demonstrated and explained in the first half hour of class; afterwards each student is encouraged to explore the theme on their own. Students benefit from seeing each other’s paintings and talking about the process; class critiques are twice per session, in order to share possibilities for how to develop each painting further. Emphasis is on sound painting technique and skills that will last a lifetime. We work from observation and from imagination.

Instructor: Eberhard Froehlich
