Description

This class is for intermediate artists who have some experience working with oils, but who have not yet ventured out to paint on location. The first class will be held indoors at WWAC, the materials needed will be discussed in the first session, but you can purchase the things on the list prior to the first class if you feel comfortable doing so. In the case of inclement weather, class will be held indoors at WWAC and we will focus on sketching in pencil to better understand perspective, proportion and other factors that can be challenging in an outdoor environment.
