Instructor: Jody Holbert
In this three-hour class, adult students of all abilities will have the perfect opportunity to develop or refresh skills and become comfortable with completing a painting. Participants will learn a variety of techniques and explore the possibilities of watercolor and acrylic paints while learning wet-on-wet, dry brush, wash, and glazing. After experimentation with color, brushwork, and composition, they will complete a painting in the medium of their choice. Adults who participated in our painting classes last year will bring new insights and find new challenges in this year’s painting program.
Informal, informative, and inspiring hands-on art classes with changing themes provide a unique focus for adult learners of all ages and abilities to engage in Museum-based art education and creative exploration. Permanent collections balanced with changing exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of artists, art forms, and processes. Opportunities for individualized instruction, observation, practice, experimentation, and the development of a personal style are at the core of all of our adult art classes. Instructional projects vary throughout the year; most students attend for consecutive sessions.
