October 28, 6:30-8:30pm Liz Frankland, award winning artist, will demonstrate each week, the next steps toward developing a painting over 5 weeks. All students will create their own version of the same composition which will be a figure in a room. It’s great learning technique. Registered students will receive a materials list. Due to social distancing requirements, this class is limited to 6 students and two classes are being offered, Mondays and Wednesdays.
Wednesdays, 9/16-10/14, 6:30-8:30pm For the beginner to advanced skill levels:Learn how to paint more loosely but accurately with confidence in this five-week painting class. We will focus on painting a figure within an interior space inspired by the 1958 movie “Indiscreet” with Ingrid Bergman and Cary Grant. Classic movies have a visual style that translates nicely into representational paintings in the tradition of Edward Hopper.
Liz Frankland will combine demonstrations, one on one instruction and positive encouragement. Fundamental skills about composition, color, value and brushwork will be demonstrated step by step each week until the painting is complete. We will work from the same image and learn the process and problem-solving of creating a painting.
