Linda will demonstrate in all of the classes. A variety of subject matter will be used, along with many techniques. Various color schemes will be used to create vibrant and dynamic finished work. Discussions will include basic composition, value, color and temperature balance.
Classes are in four week sessions at a fee of $125.00 per session, payable at the first class in each session. The classes are on going and each class will add building blocks of information and techniques to advance your painting.
