Join Michelle Chrisman for this 8-week adventure in  painting the still life in oils. Working from spring flowers, students will learn to work quickly with limited, energetic brush strokes, suggesting rather than rendering reality allowing your paintings to stay fresh and full of life. There will be an emphasis on capturing the effect of luminous light using the colors of the spectrum. We will focus on simplifying shapes and values, for contemporary compositions as well as developing color “stories” in your paintings. Michelle will begin each day with a short demo using both a brush and palette knife. You will leave this class with a whole new perspective on what is possible in your oil paintings. Painters at all levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced.

Please sign up early; class size is limited to 12 students.
