 Beginning, Beginning Oil & Acrylic Painting Class
If you have wanted to learn to paint in oil or acrylic and have felt intimidated and a little nervous about painting with a group, and are finding it difficult to get the information you need all on your own, this Beginning, Beginning Painting Class is for YOU!
Often I am asked “where do I start?”. The answer is always the same, “At the beginning of the beginning”. With the help of instructor Trish Harding you will find this a friendly, engaging, & safe environment to begin YOUR new art adventure.

  • Support; your canvas or surface that you will be painting on
  • Under painting: how to prime your canvas with color and value before you start the painting
  • Composition: How to break up your first shape (picture plane) with line into your pleasing composition
  • Shapes: How to create strong shapes
  • Brush: How to use the largest brush possible for the job in the beginning of your painting
  • Color Wheel: How to use a simple color wheel to help you become a “color expert” (included in your tuition)
