LEARNING OR REFRESHING, WATERCOLOR SKILLS (Once a week, 6 week program; 2 hr classes)
Open to beginners and intermediate level students, the course will cover a comprehensive approach to learning watercolor painting covering six areas: Equipment & Supplies, Drawing & Brushwork, Composition, Color Mixing, Starting & Finishing your painting. A low-key approach to painting an actual still life, using a technique called "TSP," will be taught which explains the step by step approach to developing a watercolor work of art. This is an excellent class for those who want to return to watercolors after a lapse in time or for the beginning student who wants to learn an effective way to paint with watercolors. COST: $250.00; (6 wks:12 hrs. of instructions); Monday evenings - 6-8pm; Starting April 13th - ends May 25th; Classes held at Magnus & Gordon Gallery, 354 4th St (Artist Alley), Delray Beach, FL
PAINTING FROM A PHOTOGRAPH (Landscapes & Florals), a new approach
Using photographs of either landscapes or florals as references, the student will learn to develop good composition, exciting washes and glazes and the use of a limited palette as they develop another approach to the creative process in completing a painting. Abstract expression and other methods of creativity will be encouraged. The goal is to develop a painting style solely based on a personal expression; in some cases a loose and spontaneous approach or in other cases a stylistic application when painting in watercolors. The class will be directed against copying the reference photo in a realistic manner, but rather to create a personal expression in producing a work of art. This will be an exciting way to paint in watercolors. This is an intermediate or advance level in watercolors.
Cost: $250.00; six week program; 12 hrs. of instructions; Wednesday evenings - 6-8pm; Starting April 15th - ends May 27th; Classes held at Magnus & Gordon Gallery, 354 4th St. (Artist Alley), Delray Beach, FL
PLEIN AIR PAINTING (Six week program; 3 hr. long class; painting outdoors)
Intermediate and advance level students will learn "plein air" painting from "a to z." Students will be taught equipment and supplies needed for outdoor painting and how to deal with elements such as light, wind, spatial relationships and other things unique to painting outside, on site. Locations in Palm Beach County will be selected for weekly sites that encompasses a variety of landscape compositions. Students will be taught how to develop a foreground, mid-ground and far distance in their compositions to create atmosphere and mood. They will be encouraged to be creative and to make use of self-expression and learning the importance of painting quickly in outdoor conditions that tend to dry watercolors quicker than when painting indoors. Although this is an introductory course in plein air painting in watercolors, experienced plein air artists who sign up for the course will gain knowledge in expanding their watercolor techniques and gain a better understanding of how to get desired results. Intermediate or advance level only. (18 hrs. of instructions) cost: $320.00. Outdoor locations will be announced before start of classes.
