Class Description

This class is both fun and informative. Students will learn about:
the techniques of the master painters whose paintings hang in museums. This would include how they painted, how they got their inspiration, how the made their materials and their brushstrokes.
the techniques of a few artists who are not yet famous
how to visualize and then shape clay into a desired object
how we can better appreciate the tapestry God made in the heavens and on earth for us to see
working with diverse mediums such as different paints, different surfaces to paint upon and different tools such as brush versus pallet knife
how to blend colors to achieve that just right look in a painting
the effect different music styles have on art work
And a field trip to Twelve Oaks Farm to see some real vibrant natural colors

In any class I teach the central theme of my teaching will always be to “Create the vision and develop the passion.” from Wings of Eagles Consulting, used with written permission.
