9:30 am
12:30 pm
Woodmere Art Museum Studio

REGISTRATION FOR THIS CLASS IS CURRENTLY FILLED. If you would like to be added to a waiting list for the class, please email Amanda Monroe at ASAP.

Enjoy painting, drawing or a combination of both. Beginners will be taught how to “see” and not just look. Questions like “where do I start?” will be answered. You will learn what makes an interesting composition, how to shade, and how to give your pictures character and depth. Beginning painters will learn color theory and mixing, how to handle paint, composition and basic techniques. More advanced students will continue to hone their skills through a combination of painting from real life as well as the classic method of artistic learning: copying from other artworks (including paintings and photography).  Demonstrations and individual instruction will be given to each student. You will progress at your own pace in a relaxed atmosphere.
