Acrylic Painting w/ J. Dudley

May 7 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until May 21, 2024

This class runs from April 2nd to May 21st, on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm – 9:00pm (8 classes). If this class is full, you may phone us at 306 653 1900 to add your name to a wait list.

The elements of art including line, shape, form, space, texture, value, and colour will be explored using a reduced palette. We will focus on a particular element each night while painting a still life. Brushes, mediums, surfaces, and composition will be discussed. The focus of the class is to become comfortable using paint and brushes. The needs of each student will help form the direction of the course. Acrylic paint will be the medium used for teaching purposes. If you prefer to use another type of paint, please consult the instructor prior to class.
