Acrylic painting by Marietje Halberstma, adult course – winter term

I’m teaching two summer courses this year, starting in the second week of June!

Working from nature, still-life, photographs, and independent ideas, students ages 11-15 will be introduced to specific drawing fundamentals and techniques including line drawing, value, shape, pattern, texture, shading, perspective, and composition. Mediums that will be explored include charcoal, pastel, inks, paint, and paper. A $35 materials fee is included in the course fee.

Do you want to learn painting techniques? Are you intimidated by the requirements, rules, and rigors of creating a highly polished, finished work of art on canvas? You may find that by sketching on paper with acrylic paints, you will be less “awed” by the artistic experience, and will enjoy the activity, without the pressure of creating interesting visual images. We will develop fundamental painting techniques as we paint from a variety of subjects including still lifes and landscapes. Our art will progress from sketches to a finished painting and you may discover that your loose manner is as beautiful and interesting as more polished works. A supply list will be mailed upon registration.
