Starting with Basics is the perfect introduction to painting and arting! In this class you learn the basics of: color (as you experience the excitment in complementary colors, the unifying power of analogous colors, the chromatic richness of neutrals), composition (how to plan for expression and create a center of interest); perspective (both linear and aerial--and how to use them); form (how patterns of light and shadow lead to 3-D effects); brush strokes (from flat and variegated washes to dancing with your brushes); techniques (from wet-into-wet to spattering, pouring, spraying, stenciling, scrubbing). Each week your paintings are the focus of a nurturing critique and the means for you to explore your creativity.
