Painting Techniques:

Oil, Encaustic, and Gouache 

Wednesdays, September 11- November 13

7:00-9:00pm       $250.   

This 10 week introduction to painting will give students a sense of direction for future painting choices. Advanced painters are welcome to join to hone skills. Always learn new things.

Oil painting is my favorite of all techniques because for me it is the most sensual of all materials. Its texture is smooth and rich, the dry time is slow to allow for blending and the scent of turpentine sets the mood perfectly.

Encaustic painting uses bee's wax and pigment to apply rather than "paint". It is perfect for my obsessive nature-I enjoy the process of planning layers and the action of scoring and scraping through the wax. The heavenly beeswax just smells like creativity.

Gouache Painting has become vital for my work because of its accessibility.   Time is precious and this material allows me to paint any time, any where. Gouache paint is an opaque watercolor, and is a great choice for graphic designs.  Painting on paper also gives me the freedom to experiment with composition and ideas.
