Painting Class (Oil/Acrylic)

Run by McKenzie Towne Council






Tagged in: Arts & Crafts, Science & Tech, Performing Arts

Learn to paint light-filled oils and acrylics from experienced artist and instructor, Cheryl Peddie. This class can be used either as an introduction for brand-new painters, or as a refresher course for painters who want to review some core skills. You will learn:

Drawing skills – Learning to see angles, positive and negative shapes, and values more accurately

Color theory – Understanding and mixing colors, values, temperatures, and saturation

How to compose a painting – the stages and layers of actually building a successful painting

Design - an easy introduction

Plus, learn about supplies, brush care and various helpful tips on work space setup and routines for best painting results.

Throughout class, Cheryl will spend time one-on-one with each student, plus have group discussions. Cheryl will also do demonstrations in class to help illustrate the concepts students will be learning. Learn to paint in a relaxed, friendly environment. Join us for some creativity in our bright, spacious studio. Open to beginners and up, and ages 18+.
