Tuesday Introduction to Painting
9:00 PM TO 12:00 PM
Five Weeks: July 11, 18, 25, August 1, August 8
You really want to paint, but how to I start, or, what am doing wrong? We have the answer for you... an Introduction to Painting with Robert Beaulieu. This is no Paint and Sip party held at your local hang out.. this is a real learning experience. The intention of this class is to launch you correctly into the issues of color, value, drawing and prespective, and using the tools to provide such. Simple shapes will be arranged in a light box for you to closely observe and draw/paint. Its an ideal way to learn relationship of shapes against one and andother as well as learning basic perspective. At first, they are all painted white, so color is not the issue, but instead, we conscentrate on value. From there, we progress to shadows, and modeling of the shapes. With that confidence of our drawing ability and relationships, we will add color to the formula, and eventually we should conclude with a nice still life that you can take home and be proud of.
This is an ideal launching point to eventually graduate to more complicated still lifes, (florals?) Plein aire to even portrait study.
Suggested basic materials. (oil preferred, Acrylic acceptable) Palette, Solvent, paper towels, One 11 x 14" cansvas board for each class, brushes #2, 4, 6 rounds, and flats, Paint to include White, Black Cad Red medium, Cad Yellow light, Ultramarine blue, Cerulean Blue, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Umber... plus more if you wish...Many prefer a latex glove and apron, (yes painting can be messy) and of course a burning desire to capture something fine on canvas.
