NEW! Intro to Impressionist Oil Painting Intensive

with Mark Hierholzer

Wednesdays, May 6 – 27, 1 – 4 pm

Studio School, 2nd floor

A crash course in observation-based landscape painting in oil, this class shows students how to “see” the world through a painter’s eyes. Technical demonstrations stress line, shape, value, and color. Students learn to simplify the landscape by identifying color masses from which to develop impressionist oil paintings. A materials fee of $30, payable to the instructor, will be collected at the beginning of the class and will cover all materials. Students may also supply their own materials.
Prerequisites: basic drawing skills
