Landscape Painting for the Beginner w/ Melanie Levitt (3 sessions)


In this 3 week painting workshop, beginner students will learn how to sketch and paint a winter landscape scene in either oils or acrylic. Winter photos will be provided as a reference or students can bring their own.

The instructor will lead the class with demonstrations, from initial sketch to finished painting. There will be a lot of emphasis on mixing winter colors from a limited palette. Instruction will also be given in composition, sketching, value, brushwork and use of materials. This class is suitable for the beginner student who wants to further their skills and learn to paint. Oils or acrylics are suitable for the class but the instructor will be demonstrating in oils.
