Do you feel you have the basics of painting but now are not quite sure where to go? Let’s investigate a variety of approaches that will expand your understanding of subject matter and technique. Focused exploration, group discussion, and individualized instruction will help you get closer to knowing your personal subject and style, be it abstract or representational.
Materials: For our first class, please bring all your usual painting supplies (oil or acrylic paints, brushes, solvents, roll of Viva paper towels, palette knife, palette, etc.), along with a stretched square canvas—roughly 30” x 30” (or if you like, go larger). Please be sure to leave your e-mail address and phone number when registering. I will be contacting each student in advance to give more detailed information as to what else will be needed for our first class meeting. Students may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or via www.piastern.com.
