Maura Sheehan Fine artist; founder, director, Manhattan Art Program

This course is designed for beginners and experienced painters alike. Demonstrations for both acrylic and oil paint will be included, as well as color theory, mixing color, light and shadow, glazing, priming, composition and content. Through guided experimentation and exploration with color, you will develop techniques and gain the skills to realize your artistic vision. Group critiques and one-on-one instruction will help inform and assist your process. From canvas preparation through to the completion of the painting-working from models, still life, photographs or imagination-the instruction will focus on individual growth in a supportive environment.
NOTE: Please bring dark charcoal or 6B pencils and a newsprint pad (18x24") to the first session.
