Does your child (ages 10-15) love to paint and want to better their skills?

Sign him or her up for this seven-session painting with acrylics series for beginner to intermediate painters. First-time beginner students will need to take the optional Pre-Session class that meets one week before the first class (on Wednesday, January 10 from 3:30-5pm). Returning students are welcome as well–but not required as they’ve already taken this session. This class will equip them with basic techniques and fundamentals of composition, perspective and color theory.

Students will be given an animal subject matter to paint for this class series with focused instruction and guidance from our trained artist. They’ll also work on one small still-life during the course.

Pre-Session: Composition & Color Theory (Optional for returning students/mandatory for First-Time Students)

Class One: Painting Prep Work and Ratio Conversions

Class Two: Value Painting

Class Three: Monochromatic Study

Class Four: Underpainting–Learning about opposites & complimentary colors

Class Five: Underpainting Continuation

Class Six: Actual Color Study

Classes are 1.5 hours long and will meet on Wednesdays beginning January 10 (Pre-Session) and end on February 28. (3:30pm – 5:00pm)
