ACRYLIC & OIL: LEVEL I with Penelope Grumbine Hornock, Monday's  4-7pm. (beginner to intermediate)  As a beginner, you will be introduced to laying out a color palette, how to mix colors, use acrylic and/ or oil medium. Tools and techniques of acrylic and oil paints will be demonstrated. Knife paintings lend themselves well to canvas board and brushes to stretched canvas. The elements of structure and space in a composition and the use of light will be emphasized. Sketches from life and your own photos may be used as references for subject matter. You may bring your own still life objects of interest.

TUITION: $175 MEM / $200 NON-MEM

well to hold mediums. Small plastic lidded containers (if you mix paint that you will want to keep and store until you complete the work)
