INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED with Linda Hutchinson – In this class students will explore various methods of using oil paint to create works based on both direct observation from reality and design. The course will begin by painting simple forms and progress to more complex layouts. Two weeks will be spent on each project…one week drawing and planning; the second week painting. Goals include: increasing spontaneity while painting; learning to problem-solve during the painting process; and learning to self-critique. Design elements and principles will be utilized to guide studies. Possible subjects to include: still life, interior, plants, architectural elements, human figure, portrait and landscape.
