Intermediate and Advanced Oil Painting from a Still Life

Lyme Art Association, 90 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT

October 18 - December 13, 2017

This course will be presented in a formal class structure with a series of lessons to enable students to see color and value better, improve on their composition, and work on the quality of their brush strokes. Students will paint quick one day paintings focusing on a particular lesson for the first half of the class. The last 4 weeks we will produce one or 2 larger still life utilizing lessons learned. This class is recommended for students with 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.
