Teens 15 years old and older attend a 2 hour weekly class to develop their skills in drawing and oil painting. This is a combined class, suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced students. 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.
