Liz 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, five weeks. Register HERE. A materials list will be provided to registered students prior to class.
How to get to art:
Some people delight in playing with color, some are intrigued by shapes and shadows. Others challenge themselves with realism. No matter. However you arrive is the best way. Choose your path, but take a step.
