    This class introduces the foundational concepts of oil and acrylic painting, covering composition, value, color, and materials. Students can choose their preferred medium, acrylic or oil paint. You'll learn the basics on laying in a painting, with attention on values and color. Color mixing will be taught using a limited palette.

    Students will have the option to work from photos or still life arrangement. If the weather cooperates students will have the opportunity to try plein air painting in Hannah Park (next door to CTAC).
