About the course

Students will be drawing with pencil and pen, then painting with oil and acrylic. They will be practicing to draw in the first two weeks in this class. The goal will be to learn how to create perspective, shading, and proper dimensions. Then, we will start to paint with oils. We start with oil before acrylic so that students will have enough time to work on their paintings rather leave them behind after the semester is over to dry. Oil painting takes more preparation, clean-up and drying time than acrylic. The last part of the semester will be using acrylics. I limit the amount of students to 6 per semester mostly due to prep and clean-up needs, but also so that I am able to see how each student is understanding and working with their art pieces. Because each student is different, how I present the material may differ each semester, but what is covered during the course does not change from semester to semester. Students are welcome to take the course as many times as they like and pick up something different each time. The goal is to give them a space to practice painting, not to create masterpieces. Many, if not most, of the pieces will be incomplete or not as polished off as they could be. If the student misses a week, part of that painting will not be complete. I would encourage parents to make paints available to those students who wanted to put more time into their work than what time allows at co-op. I can provide a list of materials needed to buy for home painting. Painting, like any other form of art, requires patience and practice with experimentation.
