11. THE FIVE KEY ELEMENTS TO BETTER PAINTING-JEFF YEOMANS

We’ll explore the five principles that are the path to continuing to improve the quality of your paintings. I will explain the hows and whys of working loose and keeping it fresh! Other topics will include how to use computer software to improve reference photos to paint from, and new possibilities for subject matter. By taking small risks and simplifying complex problems, you will better understand the most effective way to focus your efforts. The instructor’s emphasis is a thoughtful, considered approach to demystifying the complexities of painting. It should be challenging, but fun! Learn to enjoy the process of painting. It will enable you to find your artistic “voice”.

Beginning students will learn basic studio techniques to consistently improve their painting skills. Returning students will explore more challenging subject matter, and advanced levels of each of the 5 essential components of painting.
Thursdays, 9:30 AM-12:30 PM      (8 weeks)

But don't take my word for it…another student's comments: A note to let you know that I've just loved your class.  I've appreciated your work for a really long time- and it's been my good fortune to learn how you think and go about your paintings. I've learned so much - and look forward to painting the cliff and finishing the dark beach scene.  I was super intimidated to start- not having painted in 25 years. I've signed up for your next 8 weeks - and hope the other students do too.  It's fun and informative to watch others grow as well. So thank you so very much/for your generous sharing of all that you've learned and your beautiful photography.  I was an art teacher for many years....so I have a appreciation for a really good one. -D.
