Traditional Techniques in Oils and Acrylics with Kathy McNenly

This course will concentrate on providing the student with a more traditional approach to painting. We will be learning about the fundamentals of drawing, colour mixing, materials and how to build up a painting from underpainting to overpainting and glazing. The course will teach the student how to see form and structure and how to approach a more realistic image. The instructor will be doing short demos to aid in understanding concepts. Students will have a choice of subject matter, which will include  portrait, landscape or still life. Students may work in either acrylic or oil. Returning students continue to work on their own projects.
