Fall) Fundamentals of Painting with Joan Zell
Start Date: August 14, 2024
End Date: October 02, 2024
Instructor: Joan Zell

This class is for the beginner painter as well as those who have some
experience. I will be using oils but you are welcome to use acrylic paints.

What you will learn:
Painting tools and how to use them.
Basic drawing skills and exercises.
Value and Color Theory
Our goal is to complete a painting by the end of the class.

At the beginning of each class I will demonstrate exercises that will
help guide the student to a greater understanding of planning a design,
creating a value structure, and blending colors that are harmonious.
