Painting Course with Jay Jensen
Sunday, 1 pm to 4 pm - Start anytime
Students will develop their ability to work mostly from still lifes and with the help of photographic references.
We will use a variety of techniques and tools to develop your perception of the shapes, proportions, values and colours that are the foundation of painting. Most techniques are applicable to oil and acrylic paint.
All students will follow a personal path and choose the subjects that interest them and which will provide a better structure for their artistic development.
None. Students without drawing experience will be able to develop their eye by doing mass studies, using grids or wipe-outs.
For beginners, we recommend to start with simple forms in monochrome paint and to progress toward more complicated subjects using a limited palette in order to develop a good control of values.
We provide the easel and the pleasant atmosphere!
Please bring your paint (titanium white and the three primaries, red, blue and yellow), towels or rags, 2 palette knives, canvas, a few brushes, 12x16 palette paper. For acrylic, also bring retarder medium. For oil paint, also bring linseed oil, odourless solvent and small containers for oil and solvent.
