Painting is a very curious act. Do you have the desire to make something look real? Have you ever wondered about color and how it creates form and atmosphere? This is a beginning course designed to introduce the fundamentals of painting. Using oil paint, students will explore the many aspects of color in a very clear, methodical way. Weekly, you will build your understanding of color and form painting from subjects that will include still life and the model. The course will concentrate on each student's individual development, enhancing his or her technical skills and personal expression. By the end of the course you will be amazed at your newfound ability.
