Registration is closed

Join artist, Michelle Chrisman, to learn methods and techniques of how to quickly design bold paintings, capturing a simplified light and shadow pattern of the simply clothed figure and background shapes. Each session will start with small 25 stroke paintings, moving from 5 to 45 minute poses.  Concepts of value and color value will be explored through large, bold shapes with thick strokes of paint. Students will learn to quickly pre-mix correct color values in order to paint quickly, with decisive, intentional, large brush strokes.  On the second day, students will move to  longer poses and larger canvases, while still maintaining a contemporary approach.  All levels of painters are welcome.

Please sign up early; class size is limited.
