Class Description

Chris teaches with a fun and relaxed style.  Each day there will be a demonstration and lots of one-on-one instruction. This workshop will feature two mediums. One day will be watercolor and the other will be oil painting. Both mediums will be taught with a focus on a direct alla prima process of painting using a simple, shape to form process. Emphasis will be placed on sound design, dynamic value relationships and interesting color. A supply list will be provided for both mediums. At the end of each day, the class will reconvene to review and critique our efforts. Come prepared for outdoor painting–sunscreen, bug spray, water, etc.

Registrants are able to sign up for either one or both days. 

An artist is not required to purchase the EXACT supplies in the lists below. They are guide provided by Chris to help artists fill in any gaps for the workshop.
