"Why Paint a Lion?"
Tuesdays, July 13-27, 2021

Guy Combes will not only demonstrate how he produces a simple oil painting, but also introduce ways that you can elevate your wildlife paintings, while remaining within the boundaries of realism. The first session will focus on subject and composition. Students are encouraged to bring any images that have special significance to them, that they would like to translate into a painting. The second session will be a demonstration of technique in both real time and time-lapse video showing palette mixing, paint application, glazing and finishing. In the third session, students are encouraged to show their work, either previously painted or produced as part of the class, and considerate critique will be given.

"Painting Birds In Watercolor"
August 9-30, 2021

Get loose, go outside the lines, and be unafraid of your watercolors! During this 4-week course, Kim will guide students through several different approaches to painting birds — a very direct painting approach, a wet into wet approach, and a unique “throwing paint” approach. Students will learn to relax and open up their creativity and imaginations. Although, continue to explore additional techniques around the making of shapes, using color combinations, simultaneously designing foreground and background, taking advantage soft and hard edges, students will gain confidence in reaching the point where they realize their painting is done.
