Painting: Foundations & Discoveries

In this course students will learn the basic technical components of making a work of art through painting. Students will have the opportunity to strengthen their technical skills by painting from observation while also learning how to nurture their voice as an artist with personal projects. Using acrylic and gouache paint, we will focus on developing a strong understanding of light, color, and proportion. All levels of experience are welcome!
