Acrylic Painting; 5 weeks

Join local artist Liz Frankland for a 5-week class on acrylic painting. Frankland, who is based in Berkley, is an award winning painter with a love of mid-century modern design, everyday spaces, and interiors filled with light and shadow.

Frankland will demonstrate how to create a scene that is loose but realistic in style, and how to find the point where detail can be expressed accurately yet abstract. Students are asked to bring 2-3 inspirational images to work from and will leave at the end of the class with their own painting. And don’t worry about a cluttered photo! Frankland will help students navigate what to highlight and minimize in the final work.

Wednesday evenings, October 3, 10, 17, 24, Nov. 7 from 6:00-8:00pm. A materials list will be provided to registered students prior to class. We must have minimum 5 students or the class will be cancelled. Register on the calendar page.

Scenes of the past
Past Time, art recalling the past.

Experiencing the paintings of Liz Frankland, the viewer can almost feel the breeze entering through the screen door. For the last three years, Liz has been exploring the connection between the past and present; how we see and connect with the people and places that shape our lives. Her yesteryear scenes pull at the heart in a pleasing way.  Liz Frankland is a graduate of CCS, BFA. All the art in this show is for sale and will be on display from  July 16 through August 31.
