Painting & Drawing Classes

12 to Adult | all skill levels
Instructor: Jim Glover
Wednesdays, July 19 –August 23: 10:00am – 1:00pm
One weakness in many of our paintings is the countless “dabs” of paint that don’t “say anything.”  Our goal in this class will be to see how many of those unnecessary strokes we can eliminate.  We’ll set up simple still life arrangements, then paint them in bold, juicy swaths of paint, counting as we go.  Our limit? 40 individual brush strokes to complete our painting.  This forces us to sacrifice the unessential for the vital marks needed to tell our visual story to our viewers.  Sound like fun?  It is, and a great way to grow as an artist!
