Join artist, Michelle Chrisman, to learn methods and techniques of how to design quick, bold paintings, capturing the simplified pattern of light and shadow of the clothed figure with background shapes. Each session will start with small paintings before we move to longer poses and larger canvases.  Concepts of color and value will be explored through bold shapes and thick strokes of paint. Students will learn to pre-mix correct color values in order to make decisive, intentional brush strokes. As the class progresses, we will develop and maintain a contemporary approach to the figure.  Painters at all skill levels are welcome. Those working in acrylics are welcome but Michelle will be demonstrating in oils.

Please sign up early; class size is limited to 10 students.
