Small oil studies ( plein air or studio) can be beautiful in themselves. Where one brush stroke can say so much, a larger painting needs more "fleshing out".

So you have some small "gems" that are sitting in your studio waiting to be transformed into big beautiful masterpieces? Now you can learn how to use them as a reference to make larger more powerful paintings.



  Critiques for Your Paintings

All mediums welcome

Given by Susan Blackwood and Howard Friedland

Thursday Every other week (4 sessions)

January 28, February 11, 25,  and March 11th
(please note that this class is starting in January)

5:30 - 8:30 pm

Cost $195

Use these critique sessions to climb to a new level in your work. Many of you have paintings that need some tweeking but you aren't sure what needs adjusting.

Through this critique, you will hear how your and other artist's paintings or drawings can be improved. It doesn't matter what medium you are working in, bring it for critique. We are meeting every other week for 4 sessions. That will cover 8 weeks, giving you lots of time to correct and create new ones for each session.  



Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain - Part 2

Light and Shading

Taught by Susan Blackwood

Mondays February 1st - March 10th

5:30 - 8:30 pm

 This is a class in the study of light and form. If you are reasonably happy with your recognition of shapes and your ability to draw them, but you want more three dimension in your drawings and paintings, then, this class will help you. It takes you from the outline of object to their form.

All aspects of lighting will be covered, from back light, side lighting, reflected light and the many wonders of shadows. This class will not only help your art, but your seeing of the world around you will be enhanced. Medium will be pencil.
