Watercolor for All Levels with Christopher Wynn

Mondays, March 2 – April 20  |  6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Christopher Wynn will demonstrate many of the techniques he uses to paint watercolors of contemporary realism. He typically “mixes and rolls” the paint directly on the paper to achieve soft, organic gradients, transitions which virtually impossible in other mediums. These techniques often bring surprising results, as there is an element of “hit-or-miss.” Christopher will also demonstrate how to mix a tri-color black (for greater depth in watercolor), effective mixing techniques, the use of various warm and cool grays, charging techniques to bounce and enhance light in a work, and his use of resist (or masking fluid). Lastly he will discuss the materials he prefers to use and the reason why. Each class provides a great deal of individual attention. Fee: $235, for 8 weekly sessions.

Painting Classes with Curney Nuffer

Choose from Monday or Tuesday sessions

Mondays, March 9 – April 27  |  1:00 – 4:30 p.m.

Tuesdays, March 10 – April 28  |  9:00 a.m. – noon

Tuesdays, March 10 – April 28  |  2:00 – 5:30 p.m.

Beginners, intermediate and advanced levels are welcome. Classes are primarily focused on oil painting, but Curney welcomes artists who work in acrylic and watercolor. The use of oil paint — from brushes and canvases to palette and technique — is the emphasis in these classes. Curney will demonstrate how the use of a limited palette emphasizes the importance of color, value, intensity, and placement of paint. Composition and the use of photos versus using still-life setups and plein air landscapes will be discussed. Demos and exercises are combined with painting time, or artists have the option to paint on their own with help from Curney throughout the class. A “New Student Info File” will be emailed to new students. Fee: $240 for eight classes, paid in advance. Missed classes can be made up at any time during the semester in the other class times. You can learn more about Curney at www.curneynuffer.com.
