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.
All levels of experience are welcome! This class is designed to grow skills at each persons pace.
Bring any source image that inspires you! It can be abstract, landscape, portrait, interior etc whatever interests you. I suggest bringing a few photos and I’m happy to talk with you about where to begin. That’s part of the creative process 🙂
Think in terms of color and composition when selecting photo inspirations and most importantly, something you connect with.
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, January 9, 16, 23, 30 February 6 from 6:00-8:00pm. A materials list will be provided to registered students prior to class. 5 Student minimum, 12 student maximum.
