Upcoming Fine Art Classes
Fine Art Department
Instructor: George Scribner
The workshop will begin with a short slideshow summarizing what will be covered as well as showing examples of the instructors work. You will be doing small studies from still life setups. Every exercise will be demonstrated. We will work small, no larger than four 5" x 7". You will learn more by doing a lot of smaller paintings than finishing a large one. True fact!
We will cover the three basic steps of a painting: 1) DRAWING, 2) VALUES, the relationship of lights and darks and finally, 3) COLORS.
Concentration will be on Value – probably the most important step in your painting. It's generally where most paintings fail and it's the easiest thing to fix. Also stressed will be the concept of having a clear idea of what you are setting out to paint – what is your painting about – who is the hero and how do I lead the viewer’s eye to it.
Looking forward to having you in class!
