Painting Skills


Painting Skills - The "Tool Kit" of Art Classes with Kathleen Mooney

Brush Handling - build your artist's vocabulary and speak with compelling competence in using the brush and other mark making tools. 

Drawing - Can't draw a straight line? That is a GOOD thing! You learn not only how to draw traditional realistic subjects, but HOW to add expression to what you draw.

Paint and Colors! How do you know what paint and colors you want to use without "buying out" the art supply store? 

Acrylics and Watercolor - want to see the best of both worlds? There really is no need to choose in the world of water media! Come see how these two media work individually and together.

Understanding Abstraction - abstract representation is a continuum and this class teaches you to see and understand the subtle differences and distinct extremes. Learn how abstraction helps with visualization, problem solving and communication.

This is a 3 day class.  

Your additional materials fee of $15.00 per student covers those “surprisingly mundane” new materials and tools.  What should you bring? See the Multi Day Workshop materials list on  Materials List

Students under 18 years old are expected to bring an adult student with them. If a class could get messy - please wear clothing you don't mind getting paint on!
