September 28, 7-9PM. Artist, Justin Bean will lead participants (adults and ages 10+) through a playful exploration of paint with the intention of creating abstract art. Using acrylic paints and palette knives, we will explore both wet-on-wet gestural painting and the use of a dry base layer to create texture and dramatic color combinations. In addition, we will introduce tape into the painting process to create layered compositions with increasing complexity and vibrancy. The end goal is for each participant to produce at least one frame worthy painting. Materials fee: less than $7, or bring your own. (call studio for list) This class requires a minimum of 5 students to run.
Tuesdays, 7-9:00pm, Greg Carr will alternate weeks of drawing instruction (September 5th) and painting instruction (September 12th). The concepts of shape, perspective, proportion, light, value and color will be addressed. Students will learn techniques in several media and concepts to manifest realism. Each class is $25 or you may buy 5 classes in advance for $100. You are free to pick the dates you would like to attend, within 3 months (by Nov. 28th). Bring your own materials or pay a materials fee of $5 at the time of the class. https://articipate.us/event/drawing-and-painting-with-greg-carr/
