This course introduces students who have no previous painting experience to the techniques and principles of painting. Participants start at the very beginning of the learn-to paint process, using a step by step sequence to learn core techniques such as brush handling, how to control paint consistency, effective color mixing, as well as principles of color theory. Once these elements are acquired, students learn how to apply what they’ve learned to create a spatially convincing still life. Subject matter will gradually grow more challenging, while remaining within reach of the beginner. Acrylic paints are used to allow students to take advantage of the versatile nature of this medium. Drawing experience is necessary preparation for the course.
