Lyme Art Association

Reflections and Atmosphere, Intermediate and Advanced Oil Painting

February 22 - March 29, 2017
Wednesday mornings, 9am - 12 noon
$250 for six sessions.

Afraid of painting objects with glass and shiny surfaces? This course will cover the skills needed to make paintings or drawings with a variety of objects along with a sense of space and light. Artists will improve their ability to translate a 3 dimensional world on to a flat 2D surface in paint, pencil or charcoal. This class is recommended for students with drawing and painting experience who want structured instruction and the energy generated by working within a group. Weekly homework will be assigned as it speeds up the learning curve considerably. All students will find their work improving steadily.

Each week there will be instruction on specific skills and students are encouraged to work on corresponding studies that they will do on their own between classes. In addition, supporting readings, images and videos will accompany each week’s lesson. Locations will be near or on the shoreline between Guilford and Clinton, CT.
