ART SCHOOL IS BACK IN SESSION!

     On September 26th we started another session of Community Education.  My BEGINNING-INTERMEDIATE ACRYLICS class has one student from the previous class and many new ones too!  I have a new batch of paintings for them to do and more lessons to learn.  I had the students fill out a review sheet last class and asked if there was any particular point they wanted to learn.  I will incorporate those requests into this class.

     One asked for work on color and contrast.  That is something I will definitely increase in the curriculum.  As I posted recently on color theory, it is important.  I taught it in the last class, perhaps she wasn't there or wants more details. Either way, I'll focus more on it.

     The last class had four children aging from 9-14 and four adults.  This time I have eleven adults and one teenager. The interesting thing is that the most advanced student in this class is the teenager.  He is very talented and has recently moved in from another part of the country where he studied under another artist. I will enjoy working with him, and all the students!

   Some of the paintings we will be doing are shown below.  Each one is pretty but teaches a lesson.
Perspective, composition, and color are my main focus.

     "SEAGRASS and GULLS"
                      
"SUNNY MEADOWS"
"THE SENTINEL"

     These are the paintings I have chosen for the class to do.  Some have expressed interest in water, therefore two water scenes.  Of course, I always have alternatives if someone prefers something different.  Sand can also be a challenge, but each can teach a lesson.

     We will do four + the fifth if we have time.
The one at the bottom was done in the last class, but not everyone was there that day. Plus it was very popular and all did a great job on it.  So, it is back on the agenda as an alternative.

     If you live in the area, we'd love to have you join us for the class,  or possibly at a future time.

"PATHWAY BY THE MATANZAS"
"IMPRESSIONS OF A GARDEN"

BELOW IS THE FIRST CLASS.  WE WERE GOING OVER TERMS USED IN ACRYLIC PAINTING.  AND AT THIS PARTICULAR MOMENT WE WERE DISCUSSING THE COLOR WHEEL  AND HOW TO USE IT.  THEN WE WENT OVER THE PROPER EQUIPMENT. LATER ON, WE  PRACTICED DIFFERENT BRUSH STROKES ON OUR CANVASES.  NEXT WEEK WE WILL DO OUR FIRST PAINTING!
