The intent is to equip people with a solid foundation, skills and understanding that they can take forward and expounded upon. The class will also prepare participants for further learning such as oil painting 2. The sessions will focus on materials, technique and the importance of composition. Each week will consist of painting demonstrations, weekly assignment, critiques and plenty of time for Q & A.
