Learn how to create more expressive paintings by breaking the subject down into big, simple shapes and letting go of the details. Using shape, color and line, with an emphasis on strong composition and correct values, we will explore fun ways to express an emotion or feeling. Through a series of quick exercises, demos and critiques, we will discover how to create lively, expressive paintings that are, in fact, highly organized and carefully planned. Students will work from simple still life set-ups and photographs, using a limited palette and large brushes. Be prepared to step out of your comfort zone!

Oils are encouraged, however acrylics will work.
