Oliver Art Center, Frankfort, MI October 22, 2012 12:30-3:30 (Not a repeat of the Oct.11th class so feel free to take both classes! Different ideas and directions) $35 members $45 non-members
Class Description: Are you uninspired? In a painting rut? Come and join me for a creativity boost. I will cook up 3 to 5 different painting ideas or directions for you to experiment with. Class starts (as always) with some sort of warm-up…then you can pick from the list of painting ideas I have prepared. It might be “create a painting with 25 strokes” or “use out-lining creatively” I'll do quick demos, guide you, and cheer you on. It’s sure to be a fun and inspirational way to spend the afternoon.
Materials list: Materials: 1. Paint… red, blue, yellow, and white. (black optional) 2. Your favorite brushes (small to large) 3. at least 2 supports to paint on…watercolor paper, gesso primed paper (watercolor paper that you’ve pre-painted with gesso or matte medium), canvas, canvas panel or acrylic paper. Whatever type or size you prefer 4. Two water containers (clean and eventually dirty water) 5.
