Evening Paint [Stills, Landscapes & Portraits]
September 27 - November 1$395
Tuesdays 6:30-9:00pm | 6 Weekly Sessions
This in-person evening course will focus on the fundamentals of oil painting with two sessions devoted to still life, one to landscapes (from your photo references) and two to portrait/clothed figure from a live model. (Those not wanting to paint from the model may work from their own still life setup.) Model and still life material fees are extra and will be paid directly to the instructor. (Model fees will be split between all students regardless of whether they choose to paint them.)
All levels are welcome and instruction will be tailored to your needs. Want to learn something in specific? Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will work that into the instruction.
