Always wanted to paint but didn’t know where to start?
Curious about learning a new painting medium but don’t know how to begin?
 
If you have ever wanted to learn to paint, but don't know where to start, this is the class for you. If you want to try painting in a different medium, without the initial expense of buying all the supplies, then this is also the class for you.
In this 8 week class, you will be following the step-by-step demonstrations each week in order to completely paint a different landscape each time.
For the first two sessions you will paint in Pastel, the second two sessions you will paint in Oil, the third two sessions will be in Acrylic and the last two sessions will be in Watercolor. 
You will find out about the various materials that you would need to use to paint in each type of media and where to obtain them. Other general considerations that will be covered in these sessions will be - drawing for painting, choosing the subject matter to paint, basic composition, mixing colors and many tips on how to paint landscapes and seascapes.
All painting materials will be supplied – you will only have to bring your own brush for the oil, acrylic and watercolor classes. These will be shown and explained at the first class session.
