Still Life Drawing & Painting for Teens

The first four weeks of this class will focus on drawing, which is the basis for painting, and then move on to painting with oils for the last four weeks. We will focus on understanding light sources and how shadows are created, approaches to shading, breaking down objects to basic shapes, negative space, values, structure, object textures, and mixing color. Recommended drawing medium: pencil. The painting portion of this class will focus exclusively on using oil paint. No turpentine allowed, other brush cleaners are OK.
