A Different Approach to Value & the Portrait – (Tempera paint) Laureen Kirk
3 days-Wed-Fri, January 9, 10, 11, 10:00-3:00 $113/$127/$140  
This class will explore the use of value (black & white) in a portrait, but with a different approach than a typical painting. We will create our own painted values on several separate papers and once dry, tear these papers into pieces to construct our portraits. Student artists should feel comfortable with drawing the portrait (a photo will be provided) and be able to physically tear paper with their fingers. Beginner/Intermediate

Oil Painting with Courtney - Courtney Herndon – Monday and Tuesday, January 14 & 15, 9:00-3:30 $96/$108/$120
Painting landscapes loosely in oils, with attention to composition, color mixing, and value. We will use large brushes and painting knives on oil paper and canvas. Photos can be reference material, but we will be expressive with our painting. Beginner/Intermediate

Cold Wax Medium with Oil – Jude Winkley – Tuesday and Wednesday, January 22 & 23, 9:30-3:00 $87/$97/$107
An opportunity to experiment with Cold Wax Medium mixed with oil paints. This medium encourages a loose, free flowing expression. It adds body to your oils and enables multi-layered painting in which you can “excavate” down layers to bring out interesting effects. Some experience with oil painting suggested.
Day 1 will cover the use of CWM, basic techniques and experimenting by doing one or more abstract paintings. Day 2 will cover additional techniques applied to a simple landscape painting or paintings. Intermediate/Advanced  

Discovering Acrylics - Beth Ybarra – Thursday and Friday, January 24 & 25, 1:00-4:00 $68/74/$80

This is a class for oil and acrylic landscape painters, but all painters will gain insight into color, composition and values. We will learn from two contemporary landscape masters.

This is an analytical way of solving the most common problems we see in our critique sessions. Along with this we will talk about best painting practices.
