This fall I will begin the season with landscape painting. Landscapes offer something for every level of artist. For the beginner there is the opportunity to explore the fundamentals of color mixing and brushwork without a lot of complicated drawing. The intermediate or advanced student will gain more understanding of how to depict the many subjects of the natural world and the subtleties of a scene. Of course we will learn to paint trees, rocks and water but more important is how to integrate them into a meaningful and natural work of art. These first lessons of the year are a great way to establish some good habits. I create a relaxed and interesting atmosphere and have a great knowledge of art history and techniques. Steve has been a commercial and fine artist for more than 30 years and his art expertise is unending. Wednesdays 10:00-1:00. $30/class for Drop Ins or purchase a 4 class punchcard for $100.*
