INTERMEDIATE OIL PAINTING: EMERGING ARTIST
Join Artist Kimberly Brooks for this intermediate painting workshop where students will refine their techniques and personal style when approaching the canvas. Students will be exposed to practical techniques involving building different types of grounds, color mixing, and when to employ tightness vs. looseness. Brooks will share various techniques for embracing every stage in the life cycle of creating a work of art as well as assembling a body of work for exhibition. With an emphasis on safe studio practices, this class will teach techniques for Oil Painting (used by Rembrandt and Velasquez) that minimize exposure to toxic chemicals.
Prerequisite: drawing and composition, introduction to painting: material and techniques. First class materials: enrolled students will be given an itemized list of basic painting materials and colors.
