“He who cannot respond to his emotions with some reasonable guidance is incapable of expressing himself in an artistic matter” – Edgar Payne

To accurately convey the feelings about a subject in a painting, it is necessary to understand the fundamentals. This class is designed to introduce the students to these concepts and principles to achieve a successful painting. Students will learn a solid foundation of these components: Value, composition, color, and orchestration.

This class will be excellent for beginners and intermediate or advanced students who need
to reinforce basics or who need to achieve a better understanding of the theory.

Thorough attention to color mixing will be emphasized. Students will work with a limited palette first, and then will move to an extended one.

[returning in the fall!]

Wednesdays 4:00 – 6:00 pm

The goal of these classes is to provide skill-based learning to create a deeper understanding of the visual imagery that is all around us. At the Atelier we believe that anyone has the ability to create art,  by learning basic skills such as those implemented by Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

Each lesson will encourage a child’s creativity while asking them to analyze what they see and apply it in a variety of different exercises.

The classes will focus on emphasizing form primarily using charcoal to establish and build upon a foundation of traditional drawing.
