Description: This course is designed for intermediate or experienced painters. The class begins with warm up exercises to remind and enrich students of the fundamentals of painting: focal point, big shapes, big values, direction of light all of which contribute to a strong composition and painting. For the remainder of the class students are encouraged to develop their own unique way of seeing and expression whether it be realistic, impressionistic or abstract, from a source provided or one they bring in.  Each class is followed up with a group critique. This part of the class is enjoyed by all as we learn from each other's paintings: areas to strengthen and areas that are strong and why that is! The class is dynamic, fun and always interesting!
