Photo to Canvas
A twelve (12) session course
No class on 3/28
Working in oil or pastel from photographic reference, this class is about translating the photographic image onto either canvas or paper.
Focusing on color, value and mark making as essential tools, students are encouraged to move a step beyond the restraints of a camera to create a successful and personal work.
Discussion will include working with painting mediums and exploring different techniques. Oil and pastel. Additionally, there will be a still life set up for those who prefer.
