Intro to Painting

4-DAYS — all materials provided $275
Monday, Feb. 18 through Thursday, Feb. 21
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Ages 12 & Up
• All required materials provided
• Projects will include Watercolor, Acrylic and Oil Paint
• Three paintings in four days!
• 12 hours of instruction and studio time
• Prior drawing skills recommended

INTRODUCTION TO PAINTING is a beginner to intermediate level painting class. It is however NOT appropriate for
beginner artists. Students with an intermediate level drawing ability are ideal candidates for this class because we will not be able to provide drawing instruction. Since many artists prefer to have a simple drawing in place when starting a painting, students must have basic drawing skills in place already.

Students will learn about watercolor, acrylic and oil paint and materials, and variety of techniques.

Because each medium is distinctly different in the way it is used, process and technique is extremely important, and that’s what we’ll be teaching.

If you’ve always wanted to try painting this is the perfect class to learn the foundation skills of these various mediums — or to take what you already know to a higher level.

The instructor for this class, Julie McAskill Ripley, is a John Peto National Trompe L’oeil competition award winner.
