This class is now full, and we are no longer taking registrations.
Sunday, September 22 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Instructor: Oksana Zhelisko
Painting is our reflection and perception of what we see and feel. If you respond to the passion that is inside of you that is when the real painting comes out.
In this one-day class you will learn to take inspiration from your own landscape reference photos or sketches and elevate them to a unique, expressive work of art.
You will learn about vibrant colour mixes, strong composition methods, and the importance and evaluation of background versus foreground. You will complete two small paintings in your choice of oil or acrylic. Learn to turn an ordinary landscape into a vibrant colour story of your own!
