Preteens and Teens (12-15 years old) with previous painting experience attend weekly classes to expand their knowledge of drawing and oil painting. New students entering the class begin with a series of drawing exercises and then move on to painting using only a gray value scale before adding color. A solid foundation is developed through exercises that teach sighting, the use of positive and negative space, understanding of value and color theory. Demonstrations are a regular part of class instruction and students work from direct observation as well as from copies of drawings and paintings by Old Masters.
